The Eagles have 20 seniors returning for the 2013 season.


The George Washington Eagles are coming off an 8-3 season last year which ended with a loss to Brooke Point in the playoffs.

GW has a new head coach for the fourth time in five years. Nick Anderson, who arrives following three years at Kinston High School in North Carolina, inherits a team with 20 seniors on the roster.

“I'm looking for a good season. The kids have a lot of talent. we've been working hard all summer and the commitment level has been high,” Anderson said. “These kids have done everything we have asked them to do. they've worked hard and attendance has been good all summer long during workouts.”

The Eagles will look to a lot of JV players from last year to fill the shoes of the graduated seniors.

With a new head coach, there's always an adjustment period, but Anderson says throughout August and this off-season there's been nothing but work and positive attitudes among the team.

"We are of the motto that it's just one game at a time," Anderson said.  "Whoever we have on Friday nights that's who our attention will be towards.  We don't look ahead at anything.  We just take care of Friday night on Friday nights and worry about the next opponent on Saturdays."
