With an injection of highly talented young bloods added to Coach Zach Daily’s already battle-tested roster, Rc3’s U19 Bridge Football Club makes history.  All the players coming from Rhea County High School’s program, which is coached by Justin Smith.

“As a coach I am really looking forward to the season, this group of guys have put their heart and soul into this team over the past few years,” insists Daily.

“We’re really excited to continue to push them, and watch them raise the standard of play for not only themselves, but for soccer in the area.”

Former Golden Eagle Logan Johnson will be on duty as one of Daily’s right-hand man to assist from the sideline.  The team will also be assisted by up-and-coming talent, Elliot Parnell, who also practices with the team.

“We’ve got an outstanding group of players, up front we are getting a talented forward line of Christian Newport(Captain), Brady Rice, Levi Stumbo, adding in Zac Barnett, Cam Warfield, and Nathan Toliver.”

“Adding in a strong Midfield of Justin Price, Omar Lopez, Kennedy Hernandez, getting a rotation of Cooper Ruehling. Filling in with an experienced back, line lead by Carson Ruehling(Captian), Carter White(Captain), Phillip Hall, Nate Varner, then adding in Mehrab Parmar, Ben Doonis, Caleb LaCoe, Gabe Cathey,  Landon Clift. With an outstanding Payne Morgan protecting us between the posts,” Daily adds.
