Coach Jerry Mack isn't shying away from expectations. In fact, his are even higher. The Celebration Bowl, which doubles as the HBCU National Championship, is on the Eagles schedule internally.
Central lost star QB Malcom Bell to graduation. Mack says four youngsters are fighting for that job which is wide open. If a 4th straight conference championship happens in 2017, it will be because of the team's defense where they return eight starters.
