2014 36 Blitz: LCA Eagles

LCA has been plagued by injuries recently.

In 2014, new head coach Ethan Atchley is hoping to bring a new blueprint to the program and keep his kids healthy for another run at a state title.

It’s the same traditions, just revamped and updated.  Think back to 2009 under now-Dunbar head man Paul rains.  The Eagles went 14-1 and took home the state championship trophy from Bowling Green.

The only loss that season was by one point to Lexington Catholic.

That’s where Atchley wants his guys to be again in the near future.  And he’s using his youthful appeal to relate to his Eagles in hopes of getting there himself.

More on the return of Atchley to LCA after one season as an assistant at Lafayette in 2013, and a preview of the Eagles, in the video.
