Eagles With High Expectations, But No QB

Ashland University enjoyed unprecedented success last season, winning the school's first GLIAC football title while going undefeated during the regular season for the first time in 40 years. But they did so behind All-American quarterback Taylor Housewright, who was in his third season as the Eagles starter.

This year that position is very much in doubt. When asked who would be the starting signal caller for the 2013 season, Eagles head coach Lee Owens had less than a concrete answer. The 10th year Ashland boss named a laundry list of potential candidates who he said are all fighting for the job.

Despite the absense of a solidified starting quarterback, the Eagles will no doubt still wear a target on their backs after the success the program experienced last season. But Owens says the team isn't focusing on that.

"We really don't look at it that way." Owens says. "We look at it as a football program, just how can we get better."

Eagles fullback/tight end Logan Slavinski agrees.

"They'll be people shooting for us but expectations are still high." Slavinski says. "We're still gonna shoot to make the playoffs and make a run."

One area where Ashland will be strong in the upcoming year is along the offensive line where the squad welcomes back all five starters from last year. It will be a big help to whoever wins the starting quarterback job and the big guys up front are setting goals even higher than last seasons.

"The goal is to get to week 13." O-lineman Zach Vermillian says. "To do better than last year, do well in the conference."

The Eagles will begin their 2013 campaign on the road at Indianapolis on Sep 7. The program will be seeking their fourth trip to the NCAA Division II playoffs since 2007.
