Jeffersonville opened the season without head coach Lonnie Oldham on the sidelines, after he was suspended for playing two ineligible players in a scrimmage last week.
Coaching by committee for the Red Devils tonight...on the other sideline, U-of-L alum Stephen Ruckman making his debut as Eastern head coach.
-Labeled this week 'Operation Red Dawn' to beat the Red Devils, after the mission that captured Sadaam Hussein...
- 3rd play from scrimmage...Cody Wolfe, complete to Shane Fields...jukes, gone...touchdown Eagles...or is it? illegal block in the back on Jacob Biller...teachable moment for Coach Ruckman, just don't do it again son.
