SoBoCo center Brett Price snapped the ball perfectly to quarterback Seth Mueller who put the ball on the ground and sophomore Parker Boyce put his leg into it, sending the football sailing 25-yards over the goal posts on the extra point kick.

On the first day of practice for the fall football season, Eagles coach Trent Tracy can check one priority off his list: Find a kicker.
