Team History

Eagles Football was started as a cooperative team in 2003. The team was re-launched in 2008 to include a cooperative of 4 schools, including New Life Academy, St Croix Preparatory Academy, Bethany Academy and Liberty Classical Academy. In the 2016-17 season, Coach Gene Teigland received the MN Vikings Coach of the Week award when the Eagles won the Section 3AAAA semi-final, leading them to a first ever Section final appearance. For the 2017-18 School Year, the Eagles Football formed a new co-op, Academy Force Football, together with St Croix Prep Academy and Mounds Park Academy.
