JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Episcopal Eagles saw a major program turnaround in 2014.

After winning a combined five games in his first two seasons as Episcopal’s head coach, former Jaguars great Mark Brunell coached the Eagles to an 8-3 season, the most wins the program has seen in over a decade.

Now, as the Eagles prepare to enter the 2015 season, they are looking to build on the foundation they established last season.

To do that, Brunell has enlisted the help of a man that used to protect him when they both played in the National Football League with the Jaguars – fellow “Pride of the Jaguars” member Tony Boselli.

Boselli, who was one of the best left tackles in the league when he played, has joined the Episcopal coaching staff in an assistant role. With him came his two sons Adam, a junior tight end/linebacker, and Andrew, a senior guard who has committed to Florida State University. The two transferred from Providence high school over the summer.

Andrew will anchor an offensive line tasked with the job of protecting Brunell’s son, Jojo, who will start at quarterback in 2015 for the Eagles.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree for the 2015 Eagles.

The valuable experience and teaching that Brunell has instilled in his team throughout the past three seasons, paired with that same professional-level football knowledge that Boselli brings to the table should mean the Eagles are ready to take another step forward in 2015.
