Bayside Football Preview: Snow Hill Eagles

SALISBURY, Md- For the Snow Hill Eagles, fielding a spring football team in a pandemic is less than ideal, but third year head coach Dietrick Downing is beginning to see his program to turn the corner.

“More kids are starting to come out, people are taking more interest in the program. Just trying to get the community to back us,” said Downing. “I (also) added some people to our staff that might take us over the top.”
The Eagles, once one of the more feared small-school programs in the Bayside, have had some down years over the five years. “Just trying to develop and get better everyday. It’s been tough but if we can get better everyday, we’ll be fine.”
Downing says he wants to build his program less on wins and losses, and more on effort. “Effort and attitude, and let’s see where everything falls into place.”
