VYPE Football 2020 Preview: Class 6A - No. 5 Atascocita Eagles
Welcome to the 2020 football season. What a weird offseason it was for everyone. There was not a summer camp circuit for player to go showcase their talents at. In-person recruiting came to a screeching halt and the COVID-19 Pandemic has affected everyone.
Moving into a new district, Atascocita will be challenged as they go for a fourth-straight district crown in 2020. The Eagles enter this fall seeking its sixth-straight year of 10-plus wins and an eighth-straight playoff appearance. They have gone to the third round or deeper in each of the last five seasons. Craig Stump will have to find a new signal-caller with Brice Matthews gone to graduation. Gavin Session is set to assume control of the offense and will have some big-time targets to throw to.
First-team, all-district pick Landen King (Auburn-commit) had a breakout playoff performance last year, which caused his recruiting to skyrocket in the spring. He will be joined by District 22-6A Newcomer of the Year Keith Wheeler to pace the receiving game. Quincy Thompson will tote the rock running through the monster holes that four- star OL prospect Kam Dewberry creates on the line. Defensively, watch for Nikolas "Niko" Campbell and Caleb Burton.
