Congratulations to Robby Priest, East Bladen head football coach.  He has been named an assistant coach for the 81st annual Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas.  The head coach for the NC team will be David Gentry of Murphy.  Much deserved, Priest has accomplished much in his time as the Eagles head coach.
