and the Eagles gave back to the community by speaking to students about the importance of being on a team and the benefits on becoming part of a team.
"We want to give back to the community. It is an asset to have our players visit a school and give the kids a chance to see people from the community that are doing something positive. It resonates with them more when they can see people that look like them and then to have them come to the game helps build a special connection," Coach McRoy said.
