COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (21Alive) - The Columbia City High School football team is looking for a fresh start in 2014.

After starting the season 3-2, the Eagles lost their last five. Columbia City lost key players to injuries along the way, notably the serious head injury to running back Sam Dailey.

Ushering in the change is new head coach Brett Fox, who replaced Randy Hudgins. Fox says it starts with the basics: developing the athleticism in players and controlling the line of scrimmage.

Columbia City is expected to pass more with quarterback Trevor Bolts throwing to receivers Drew Odell and Dayne Asplund. Braden Myer returns as the leading rusher.

Myer will also lead the defense at tackle, and be backed up heavily by linebacker Jake Pettigrew and David Fulk.

The depth the Eagles used last year should translate to experience this year.
