Fox Takes Reigns In Columbia City

COLUMBIA CITY, Ind. (WANE) – There’s a new voice calling the shots at Max Gandy Athletic Field and it belongs to former Eastbrook assistant and ex-Taylor University assistant coach Brett Fox.
Fox takes over at Columbia City after Randy Hudgins left the school after five seasons for the top job at Bluffton.
Fox inherits a program that won an NHC title as recently as 2010, but has struggled since – including posting a 3-7 mark last fall.
Injuries derailed the Eagles in 2013, but the silver lining is that those injuries allowed a number of underclassmen to earn some experience. Quarterback Travis Bolt was thrust into the starting lineup last year as a junior and wound up throwing for 606 yards and seven touchdowns. Receiver Drew O’Dell also returns and Braden Myer also return at receiver and running back, respectively.
Columbia City’s biggest strength should be on the offensive line, where four seniors will be starting.
Fox notes the offense will look much different in 2014 as the Eagles make a wholesale change in their scheme.
Columbia City will scrimmage Goshen next Friday. The Eagles open the regular season at home August 22 against Warsaw.
