DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — Nehemiah Cabell is only a sophomore but he’s about to step into the starting quarterback position for George Washington-Danville.

“Just wanna show that everyone is here to compete and we’re a winning organization. Just show that just because we have new players and a new team, new coaches, we’re a different team,” Cabell said. “I feel great. I think I was born for this. Can’t wait for my time to shine and here it is.”

Last season, GW-Danville went 9-2, including a run to the region 4-D final, where the Eagles fell to Salem.

“It’s about keeping our program going in the right direction. Playoffs are something you don’t want to take for granted but it’s definitely a goal of ours every single year and it’s why we work extremely hard in the offseason,” head coach Nick Anderson said. “The last couple of offseasons have been very challenging and our guys have stuck with us through it all. And the goal again this year is to make it to the playoffs.”

Anderson is entering his tenth season at the helm and is hoping to make it ten years in a row of making playoffs.

“It’s the next man up mentality. It’s how we’ve talked this offseason. We were very fortunate to have a lot of good football players last year. Nine of ’em went on to go play college ball so there’s a lot of shoes to be filled,” Anderson said. “And the guys are excited about it, They know it’s their turn. They’ve accepted that pressure and worked hard so we can pencil them in in some of those positions until our season starts.”

The Eagles begin the season at Dinwiddie on August 26.
