A new era begins on Monday, August 19th for the Ellsworth High School Football Team as they embark upon 8-man football for the 1st time in Maine.

WDEA's Chris Popper spoke with head football coach Duane Crawford, and talked about the summer practices, why the decision was made not to have 2-a-days,  the plan for the 1st week, how many players he anticipates participating and more.

Stay tuned for ongoing coverage of the Ellsworth Eagles Football Team and all the Sports Teams. We have scheduled photo shoots for all the student-athletes on Tuesday, August 27th, with both individual and team photos. Additionally we will have the Ellsworth Football Coach's Show on twice a week beginning August 26th.
