MCA football gears up for first season of playing 8-man
Few 11-man football teams across the state had to battle adversity quite like Maranatha Christian Academy did last season. The Eagles will face a new challenge this fall, but it will likely make the grind of the season easier for Bryan Burdette’s squad. Along with preparing for its season opener against Kansas City East, Maranatha is shifting gears for the school’s first year of playing 8-man football. MCA and KC East will kick off at 7 tonight at St. Joseph’s Catholic School.
