The 2019 season will be known as a growing season for the young Chargers. The young Chargers were victorious in their week two match-up with Guerin Prep, 47-18. The Chargers would enter conference play in week three in the brand new mega conference of the ESCC/CCL. With the buildup of numerous injuries the Chargers would suffer plenty of growing pains with tough competition. Senior Mekhi Eiland highlighted the way for the Chargers with six all-purpose touchdowns. The Chargers graduated eight seniors this year. With twelve returning juniors for the coming season the Chargers hope the growth will head in the right direction.
