The Rogers Heritage War Eagles did not have the season that they envisioned last season. The rebuilding process has not been an easy one.

The defensive side of the ball has three returning starters coming back for the 2017 season. Heritage fans should look defensive tackle Landon Evans to use his athleticism to
