  • The Eagles welcomed nine new starters on the offensive side of the ball and seven on defense in the Princeton contest.
  • Senior LB Lucas Bowling scored the winning points against Dunbar with an 18-yard interception return. His pick-six was the first by an Eagle since Bryce Dugan against Anderson on Oct. 20, 2017.
  • Junior Payton Bauer and sophomore Noah Earley each scored their first career touchdowns on passes from Hunter Johnson against Dunbar.
  • Vince Ringland (112) and Max Ward (101) each finished with over 100 yards receiving against Loveland. They became the first duo since Dylan Hughes (163) and Jake Ayler (101) to top 100 in the same game since last year’s playoff win over Fairfield.
  • Ward also became the first Milford receiver since Dylan Hughes on Sept. 29, 2017 against Walnut Hills to catch 3 TDs in a game.
  • Senior LB Cameron Hemmert racked up 18 tackles against Walnut Hills; the most by an Eagle since Adam Bartrum had 21 stops vs. Sycamore on Nov. 3, 2017.
  • Hunter Johnson and Vince Ringland had monster performances in the second contest against Loveland, finishing with 387 passing yards and 173 yards, respectively. Each total is the highest by an Eagle since at least 2012.
