East Forsyth stays undefeated with win over Carver

Although it’s still early in the season, the East Forsyth Eagles seem to be the class of the county.  This past Thursday, the Eagles continued their rampage as they defeated the Carver YellowJackets, 49-0.

Carver head coach Dee Moye says immediately the coaches and the players noticed the size and number of players on the East Forsyth team.  He says he feels some of his players may have been somewhat intimidated by the Eagles, but that is to be expected from such a young team that has less than 30 players.

He says even though they were defeated, he noticed a few bright spots on the field last Thursday night.  He felt as though the competitiveness continues to grow each and every week with his team.

“Everyone was competing and the guys are starting to buy in to the culture we want to create here at Carver,” Moye said. “We still left the game kind of empty handed and it was a little intimidating for the guys.”

“We are young and we are rebuilding and it’s difficult times, so we have to grit and bear it,” he continued.  “I just have to keep coaching and hopefully things will turn around by the time conference play comes.”

For Moye, he feels as though the defense continued to play hard once again Thursday night.  He says they may have been worn down by the sheer number of quality players the Eagles were able to throw at them.

“If I am not mistaken they, had over 70 players versus our 23, so to some the odds can seem insurmountable, especially for a young mind,” Moye said.  “But once again, that’s all about coaching them up and teaching them to compete regardless of the odds.

For the Eagles, this was like another day at the office.  They jumped out to a 42-0 halftime lead.  They have been an impressive first-half team in every game thus far this season and have scored at least 40 points in every outing.

The Eagles are skilled at every level on offense and defense.  If you couple that with the advantage they have on special teams, this could be a year where the Eagles run the table.  There are other formidable teams in the county. Only time will tell whether East Forsyth can keep up with this momentum.

According to Moye, the YellowJackets are making strides to restore the school back to where they were in the early part of the millennium.  He says the kids shook off the intimidation and fought hard in the second half, which is what he wanted to see.  He says he is in this for the long haul, so he was happy to see the play of Raheim Miller and Steven Thon, who continued to play well down to the final whistle.
