Eagle Guard

Junior Zach Spraggins jumps over his teammates during halftime where eagle guard took to the top of the field to sit by the scoreboard and eat pizza. “At games, we go to the student section and we do stunts, run the flag, and play games to get everyone excited. We have each person line up and jump after each other, sort of like to create suspense and get everyone excited. We’re trying to build adrenaline, and it’s always fun to see if we make it,” Spraggins said. Talon photo by Daphne Lynd
