The Eagles Football team has had its share of players over the years who have set the bar for future generations of Akins athletes.

One of these players who recently set a school record is Quarterback Nick Cagle, who now holds the record for the most single-season rushing touchdowns by a quarterback. He achieved this record when he scored his 9th rushing touchdown in the game against Hays. He’s since added another two to make the new record 11.

Cagle said he was surprised he had broken a school record previously held by Teddy Lowery in 2013.

“It’s pretty exciting because I had no idea,” he said. “I can’t take all the credit. My offensive line and receivers gave the blocks I needed to achieve this.”

This season was by far one of Cagle’s best, featuring some strong running game performances. During the game against the Del Valle Cardinals, Cagle had a monster game with a whopping three rushing touchdowns. He was responsible for all of the Akins touchdowns that night, finishing with a score of 21-14 Akins. “All I can say is that on both sides of the ball we were doing good on defense we got stops we needed and the offense took advantage, and we were able to score,” he said. “I can’t take all the credit the offensive of line was playing perfectly and my receivers help make miss matches across the eld helping me score as I did.

His two team captains offensive linemen had all nice words to say about it Grey Wagner said” He deserves this more than anyone he’s the hardest worker on this team and that record show its. Stephen Kates said, “ He’s the man he deserves it and with all the hard work he puts in the 100 percent deserves it.”

Cagle has the most touchdowns on the team with 18 touchdowns.H e also leads the team in rushing, which is another first time for a quarterback in the history in Akins history.

With the season not even over is time for him to add on the record and pile the stats on the season with this being the last season he wants to go extra hard to leave his footprint on Akins football forever.

“I’m just really proud of the work we did when people had to step up to the plate and they did I’m blessed to be of this team and Akins history,” he said.
