 2016 Preview 

       Carroll completed the 2015 season with a 5-5 record. Last year Carroll finished sixth in Class 6A region two with a 3-4 region record and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

       The Eagles last playoff victory came during the 1989 season. They would love to break through this year with a post season win.

       Since 2010, Carroll has gone a combined 20-41. Their 33.0% winning percentage ranks 41st in Class 5A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Carroll has not won much with a record of 82-174. Their 32.0% winning percentage ranks 50th in Class 5A and 334th in the AHSAA.

       The Eagles are led by head coach Roger McDonald who is entering his fourth season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 10-20 over the past three seasons at Carroll. The Eagles have yet to reach the playoffs under his direction. They have not won a region crown with Coach McDonald.

       Coach McDonald's overall record as a head football coach in ten season stands at 58-48 (54.7%). Over the course of his career, Coach McDonald's teams have qualified for the playoffs a total of five times and won one region championship.

       The Carroll Eagles will play in Class 5A region two during the 2016 season. The Eagles may find the schedule slightly easier this season with the move down in classification from Class 6A to 5A. They will compete in region two this year.

       The Eagles will be in the mix for one of the last two playoff spots in region two this season. Carroll has failed to qualify for the playoffs since 2012 but hope to return to the post season this year.

       The Eagles open the 2016 season at home against non-region opponent Daleville on Friday, August 26 at Matthews Stadium. Last year the Daleville Warhawks finished with an overall record of 10-2 and in first place in Class 3A region two. The Warhawks lost in the second round of the Class 3A playoffs to Bayside Academy by a score of 49-41.

       Carroll and Daleville have met a total of 12 times on the football field. The Eagles have a 8-4-0 record against the Warhawks. They last met in 2007 with Carroll winning by a score of 44-22.

       College prospects include: Gajuan Davis (6-1, 210) inside linebacker,
