That Deep Gush of Wind Heard early today whisking across the Prairie was the collective breath of Eagle Fans after A Brett Ellis sighting at the opening of the Ep Youth Football Season.

Yes, he was on crutches. And, No, there is No fracture of the Left Foot. However, a severe enough sprain to have the senior QB on crutches at the Game but still smiling as always.

A visit to the Doctor Monday will tell more and be more accurate but the morning after prognosis is better than last night’s fears.

According to Ellis, the injury occured on just a tackle; where he got rolled back on the play. He said he heard something ‘pop’ and described a ghastly sight to a sportswriter.

The initial gut feeling was someting was broken. However, the gusty veteran Eagle gutted it out for the final moments of the second quarter and even came back to start the second half but coaches; doctor and common sense prevailed and Ellis sat ~ with the foot on ice.

He also commented on the photo I had of him crying, jokingly saying that it made his Mom cry, too.

A Tough Break for A Good Kid.

Hopes are that he will be back against Portageville in 3 weeks. That’s much better than anyone could have imagined following the tough loss to Hayti.

Week 5 will see Malden (4-0) coming to town with A State Ranking and A chance to chalk up defeat number 2 on the Eagles (3-1).

And, unless the Defense finds a way to stop the Thompson’s ~ the Greenwave will roll. The #EpEagles Defense needs to make A Stand at #TheNest Next Friday.

****There was a wealth of Media Coverage Friday night at the Hayti-East Prairie Game. Not only for the Eagles, but Hayti historian Al Jackson was in attendance and called the Indian victory before the Game.

Hayti was extremely pumped to play East Prairie. A fired-up Indian squad in the locker-room with some impassioned speeches by players ~ some of whom are being scouted by colleges ~ and the team was fired up from the kickoff. Ep was not.

In addition to the regulars, Sikeston Standard-Democrat Chris Pobst was in attendance. Pobst has been high on the Eagles and was surprised by the trouncing from the Indians. He did, however, note that Hayti brought their A-Game and the Eagles did not.

He agrees Malden is the cream of the crop in SEMO this year in the South.

Kyle Carter, an independent photographer and teacher at Richland was there with a student and A Great Big Zoom Lens. I look forward to seeing those shots. He also let Ep YearBook photogs Jocee Dunn and Gracie Sutton take a turn with the zoom.

Randy Sutton and KYMO continue to bring the best multi-media operation in SEMO to the airwaves; internet and beyond. The #Ep Eagles are graced with the coverage and appreciate the support, according the Feedback I receive from Coaches.

Randy’s video’s and updates are kool; Reid and Rob’s radio broadcast are 21st Century with a just-sense of Homerism’s and Ref-Baiting to make it interesting.

Oh, and KFVS was in the House at #TheNest as well in front of A Full House of Eagles Fans who didn’t get much to cheer about.

Chance for Redemption Friday against the Greenwave.

It started Ugly for East Prairie

And, didn’t get any prettier as the Game wore on.

Hayti (3-1) bolted to a 14-0 Lead ~ scoring on the first two possessions of the Game and East Prairie could not find an answer on Defense to the skilled; athletic Indians who came to play.IMG_3033

#TheEagles appeared sluggish from the outset ~ much Like last week at Scott City ~ and Hayti pounced. Scoring 4 plays after receiving the kickoff, the Indians then picked off senior Eagle quarterback Brett Ellis and converted on the next play for the 14-0 lead. Ellis would leave the game in the second half with an left-ankle sprain.
