BLUE SPRINGS, Miss. (WTVA) - East Union had a historic 2018 season, winning its first division football title in program history.

The Urchins lost running back Joel Wilkinson to graduation, but return other key players like Colton Plunk, DeJuan Hubbard and sophomore quarterback Ty Walton.

East Union began last season running the veer offense but switched to a spread offense.

"We still were 50-50 on it, but now, we're pretty much committed to it, so, I like the transition," said head coach Kevin Walton. "I definitely feel like it was the direction that we needed to go.

"We've got some kids that can catch the ball, Ty's done a really good job of throwing the ball, so, I'm really excited about it."

East Union hosts New Albany on Friday.
