2020 Snapshot: Bellbrook

Going 8-2, winning your last five games and not getting into the playoffs is a tough pill to swallow and that is what happened to Bellbrook in 2019. The Golden Eagles come into this campaign with a chip on their shoulder and fire in their belly. This team is out to prove that they are the real deal.

Head coach Jeff Jenkins has cultivated a culture of winning in his four seasons at the helm. Every player in the program has seen the varsity go 7-3 or better during his time. Now it is time to take the next step, get to Week 11 and come up victorious.

Bellbrook returns eight starters on offense including three quarters of its Wing-T backfield. A veteran and polished group in that offensive scheme is incredible difficult to defend. They will cause fits for opponents.

The Golden Eagles return seven starters from a defense that allowed just 7.7 points per game a year ago. Cornerstone studs Alex Fryman and Taylor Jordan should push this unit to be even better.

The schedule poses the same problem that it has for years. Bellbrook is the largest school in the SWBL Southwestern. They only play four games against schools their size or bigger making Level I computer points so very precious. The margin for error is very slim. One misstep or bad week puts the Golden Eagles in an uncomfortable position in their quest for a playoff berth.
