Friday evening as they fell to the Hampton Bulldogs 49-7 at J.C. Campbell Stadium.
racked up 497 yards of offense while the Eagles (1-6, 1-3) managed to total 173 yards, most of which
came in the second half.
While Cloudland has been touted by several in the media as being the
favorite to win the region this season, Hampton showed once again on Friday night that they are
still the top dog.
“I’ve said it all year. Hampton’s the top dog in this region until
somebody proves me otherwise,” Cosby head coach Kevin Hall said. “They’ve lost one game in the
region since 2004 and we beat them in 2008. Until somebody proves to me that they’re going to beat
Hampton in the region, I think Hampton’s it.”
