2009 record: 2-3 Southern League, 6-4 overall

Head coach: Rusty Lyon (6th year)

Assistants: Brett Taylor, Dirk Ulrich, Mike Williams, Jim Greenbarg, Dale Brown, Tarif Risinger

Top returners: James Riley, Aaron Bennett, Brent Abraham, Stesen Tucker, Chase Ulrich, Schyler Johnson, Nolan Kelly, Kobe BryantTop newcomers: Chase Gonzales, Marco Soria, Casey Franco

Outlook: The first word that came to mind when Coach Rusty Lyon was asked to describe his team was “aggressiveness.”  “This is really an aggressive team,” he pointed out. Once again, the Eagles are a small squad at 23 players, with most of them playing offense and defense. Turlock Christian is going to focus on its offensive line, which the coach says will be a huge factor to whether the Eagles will be successful or not. Also, the O-line has the responsibility of creating enough room for running back James Riley and new quarterback Chase Gonzales, a sophomore. The Eagles look to continue the trend of winning at least six games for the past decade.
