Spring Football 2019: East Mecklenburg Eagles

East Mecklenburg Head Coach Forshee Leads His Defense In Spring Practice

East Mecklenburg Head Coach Forshee Leads His Defense In Spring Practice

On a warm Monday afternoon the East Meck Eagles were getting after it in some 7 on 7 drills upon my arrival while the linemen were working on specific techniques on getting off blocks on defense. The basics are important to Coach Forshee, who told me that having a full offseason has benefited his team in a huge way.

Being hired very late last year, the Eagles had a tough season in transitioning to different styles under Coach Forshee. While the Eagles are smaller in numbers, they do have some very good talent in All-Conference returning linebacker Lawrence Campbell and safety Jamir Long, who fits the bill as a tall and rangy ball hawking safety in the back end.

We profiled LB/DE Sir Allen Stokes earlier in the Spring season, and he will be a force in both of those positions come the fall. WR Marques Fleming looks to be a game-breaking type of player as well, displaying some elite speed with the ball in his hands.

Please enjoy these select pictures we captured from the Eagles in action, as well as our interviews with those players we mentioned above!
