Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The growing pains are done at Fargo Davies, after four years of working the kinks out, the Eagles are ready to take off to the top of the EDC standings, bolstered by the memories of a home playoff loss last year.

The Eagles bring back 14 starters from that team and get an early shot at revenge, facing Century to start the year in a game we'll televise.

Expectations continue to rise, especially with an offense that returns one of the best quarterback-wide receiver duos in the state in quarterback Aiden Hartness and his brother Tristan Hartness at wide receiver.

Tristan Hartness/Eagles Sr. Wide Receiver: “My brother has a good arm. We have some guys that can catch the ball. I think we'll be throwing a little bit more than we did last year. We'll still balance it out with that running game. We'll definitely throw a little bit more than last year.”

Aiden Hartness/Eagles Sr. Quarterback: “Our offense is definitely going to be looking good this year. It will be like a shootout with most teams, especially against South.”

Jason Thielges/Eagles Head Coach: “I think the sky is the limit. I think we have a lot of talent offensively. We're going to throw the ball around, but we're going to need to be able to run the ball effectively as well. But, we're definitely going to utilize those two guys’ talent, that’s for sure.”

The Eagles were a balanced bunch last year, ranking among the conference leaders in the major defensive categories as well, something they feel they can accomplish again this season.

Cody Frey/Eagles Sr. Linebacker: “Pretty aggressive defense. We get right after the ball in our gap sound defense. We just do our jobs and be aggressive at the same time.”
