The Eagles return Walker who went 10-2 and batted .346 with 4 home runs, Posey who went 8-0 and batted .263 with two home runs on the mound. They also return offensive players Tease who led the team with a .505 average, Carson Neal with .433 and 6 home runs. North Florida Christian also got a big transfer in Josiah Miller, a physical  middle infielder who is committed to FSU. Overall there is talent and depth as well as experience all throughout the roster and look to finish what they started in 2018 with a 3A state title in 2019.
