2014 Silver Lake Eagles Schedule
Silver Lake, Kan. (WIBW)-- It's not easy coming off a state championship but somehow Silver Lake always seems accustomed to it. They have a state record 18 title game appearances to prove it.
This year's squad returns four offensive starters and eight on the defensive side from last years 3A State Championship team, including a defensive secondary that combined for 18 interceptions and an All-League receiver in Jace Freeman who scored 14 touchdowns.
The season opener September 5th isn't too kind to the Eagles as they open at home against 4A Division II powerhouse Holton.
Coach C.J. Hamilton, the winningest coach in Kansas high school football history (370-85), talked about the gauntlet, saying, "Our schedule is pretty tough. We've got to just handle our schedule and play up to our ability and do what we do best. Hopefully things will work out and how we handle it is the big question. We have a lot of holes to fill and a lot of players that don't have the experience that some of our other players have had, but that will be the big question mark, how we handle our schedule."
