The Porter’s Chapel football team is averaging 28 points per game this season which is the most successful the offense has been in recent years.

PCA head coach Blake Purvis, who is in his third year running the squad, calls the plays.

Purvis has put quarterback Jace Riggs in charge of the offense, and he has led the team to a 4-3 season as of now.

Tyler Washington is the team’s leading rusher, and teammate RaDarius Turner has been catching plenty of touchdowns from Riggs.

The success of the Eagles’ offense has given the team a great start this season. For the first time in four years, PCA is on the right track to make the playoffs.

The Eagles face Greenville Christian this Friday at 7 p.m. at home. Purvis is expecting the offense to show up and perform great just as they have been doing all season.
