Darry Wimbush is a three-year starter for the Eagles. He played as a freshman in G.W.'s playoff run in the '96 season.

One of the more pleasant surprises of the 1999 season was the running of pint-sized fullback Demetrius Jackson.  Here, he takes one 68 yards to the house against Pulaski County.

A steadying influence in the 1999 season was the reliable running of Senior fullback T.J. Echols (14).

If we had to pick only one highlight from the season, it would have to be Micah Knight's game-clinching touchdown run against E.C. Glass.  It gave the Eagles the district title, and put them back into the playoffs for the first time since 1996.

QB-P Jeremy Motley led the Eagles for the second straight year at Quarterback.  He'll play college ball at S.W. Missouri St.

Another pleasant surprise this year was the running of Freshman tailback Kenny Lewis (20).  He was third on the team in rushing and second in touchdowns.

Another Senior who played a big role in G.W.'s success in 1999 was Ricky Sittle (4).  He ran and caught touchdown passes, served as backup quarterback, held for extra points, and was an all-district pick at Free Safety.

Micah Knight ran for more than 200 yards in the Eagles' 39-16 dismantling of Pulaski County. He also scored four touchdowns.
