2005 Eagles team honored in Hall of Fame

The year was 2005, and the Eden Valley-Watkins football team was headed to the state tournament. That alone was quite an accomplishment.

The Eagles were undefeated until their last two games of the season, having defeated Long Prairie-Grey Eagle, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, Kimball, BBE, Rockford, and Maple Lake. Their only losses were to Holdingford and Pierz.

At sections, the Eagles soundly defeated Norwood-Young America, ACGC and Holdingford.

Their state tournament bid began with the Eagles facing Esko; they won. Next they played powerhouse Pierz; they won. The championship game a week later was against Caledonia; they won that one too.

By the half, the only points on the scoreboard were Eagles points: 7 of them.

The students are working hard in the classroom and on the sports field to do their best.
