Fellow new Centre County head coach Jesse Nagle said Bald Eagle Area football is in for an intriguing offensive change.

“We’re going to spread people out,” Nagle said. “That’s no secret.”

The former State College linebackers coach and BEA graduate wants to liven up the offense, focusing more on a spread system with plenty of no-huddle.

Nagle said he brought film of the no-huddle offense being executed at a high level with him to BEA. He’s seen how it can affect both sides of the ball, and was pleased with how well it was received by his players.

“Once they started doing it and understanding the game speed and how you can wear people down, they just sparked,” Nagle said. “Just putting those wrist bands on, they get excited.

“We’re gonna run and gun. We’re gonna have some fun.”
