THREE TO SEE
Jatavious Magee, wide receiver
Coach Meagher promises junior will get more looks than any outside threat in program history
Corey Quinn, quarterback
When he is not under center, he will either line up in slot — or next to Tausil at tailback
R.J. Tausil, quarterback
From first time Snohomish transfer threw a pass in weight room, Eagles were in awe
The Eagles always get their fair share of athletes. And two of the best of them happen to play quarterback.
So instead of choosing between Tausil, a passer, and Quinn, a runner, Meagher decided to utilize both of them.
And both have won games as starters. That is why the time-distribution plan remains the same.
The Eagles’ main issue heading into this season is depth on the offensive line. They lost a pair of all-leaguers, including Aho Makaafi, the division’s 2018 lineman of the year who is now at Puyallup.
The back end of the Eagles’ defense, led by McGee at safety and Davis and cornerback, should be a team strength.
