PECULIAR — First-year Nixa head coach John Perry thought about how far his team had come as tears flowed down his seniors’ faces. 

At first, he didn’t think his team had it in them to make it as far as it did. 

“Oh my gosh, man,” Perry said. “I remember the first time we went out there and put pads on. I went home and told my wife ‘I think I’m going to quit and go home’ because I haven’t seen anything in my whole life of an inside drill as bad as the one I saw. 

“We obviously went to work.”

Nixa head coach John Perry gives the thumbs-up to his players during the Eagles 42-6 win over Willard at Willard High School on Friday, Sep. 11, 2020.

Nixa’s season came to an end Friday night at Raymore-Peculiar (10-2) in an 18-15 loss in the Class 6, District 3 championship. The Eagles (9-3) were one of the final eight teams in the state entering the night. 

The turnaround for the Nixa Eagles football program comes after going 5-6. The Eagles hadn’t had a winning record since 2016 when it went 6-5.
