Coming off back-to-back playoff appearances and a 9-2 record in 2013, the Colonel Crawford Eagle football team has opened their preseason under sixth year coach Ryan Teglovic. For coach Teglovic maybe the biggest concern entering the off season was who was going to replace one of the best quarterbacks in the area, Nate Klingenberger who started 33 games for the Eagles over the last four seasons.

But Teglovic feels he has his man in junior Will Kirkpatrick who led the JV Eagles to a 6-1-1 record in '13, has had a good off season and performed well in passing scrimmages. Also back in the backfield is running back Eli Reffey who rushed for 610 yards scoring ten touchdowns. Kirkpatrick will have experience to throw to in Dylan Gulley. The Division III All-Ohioan in track, caught 30 passes for 703 yards scoring six touchdowns. On defense the Eagles return linebacker/tight end Kameron Landin who made 105 tackles a season ago.

2014 will start a new era for Crawford as they begin play in the new Northern Ten Conference which is made up of many former NCC rivals such as Wynford, Buckeye Central and Bucyrus. The Eagles will open the new season on the road on Friday, August 29th at Mt.Gilead, a team they beat 30-13 a year ago.
