2017 Aurora Christian Eagles summer Camp/7on7 plans

Red Grange

Elite 7 on 7 on Arkansas

Top Impact Player for Aurora Christian in 2017? Senior QB Drew Clippert. Clippert is coming off a very impressive spring and summer camp tour. Clippert possesses a big time arm, touch and can also be a threat running the football when required. The Eagles offense is always a strength and look for Clippert to have a big 2017 senior season.

Biggest Concern heading into 2017? Can the Eagles turn around it's recent fate starting this fall? Aurora Christian hasn't been in the state playoffs for three seasons now, a rarity for a program that just a few years ago was a regular state title contender in the IHSA state playoffs.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early Take on the 2017 Aurora Christian Eagles?

Aurora Christian brings back some key kids for the 2017 season including 6 starters on offense which includes a majority of skills. If the Eagles can reload a bit on defense (4 starters back) they have a chance of challenging in the CCL White along with challenging for a state playoff spot this fall.

EDGYTIM's Way Too Early regular season record prediction for the Aurora Christian Eagles? 5-4/4-5
