The program continues to be one of the best in the city and that should continue in 2019. The Eagles return 16 starters from last year’s 9-3 team that captured another district and bi-district championship. With the core of that team back this season, Andress is poised to make a deep playoff run. “The fact is we have some good returners, we have some guys who are threats with the ball in their hands, and then we have some size up front,” said Woodruff. “I think all of that can help us out.” “This is a team that can go further than we usually have,” said senior linebacker Kiante Liggins. “The hard work we’ve put in, the blood, sweat and tears during summer workouts was amazing to me. The bond we had during summer workouts is why I believe we can go further.” Andress will open the season on Friday, August 30 against Coronado. Andress Eagles?
