With the well-deserved honors the Eagles are receiving, Sharon High head football coach Dave Morse has been pretty busy since the season ended.
Dave Morse hasn't really had time to reflect on his Sharon High football team winning the Division 3 Super Bowl over Wayland Dec. 1. That's because in the 12 days since the final time clicked off the clock for the Eagles' first title, Morse has on a whirlwind tour. There have been the tasks of getting the team ready for the off season, preparing for the 2013 season and accepting all the honors that come with being a Super Bowl champion.

The Sharon High football team was greeted by an adoring crowd and police escort after their 12-3 win over Wayland Saturday.
A crowd of families and friends waited in the cold and light snow at Sharon High Saturday afternoon to get the new Division 3 Super Bowl champions. While, the title was only a couple of hours old when the Eagles, led by a Sharon police escort, pulled behind the high school gym to cheers from the families. Head coach Dave Morse was the first off the bus, clutching the MIAA Division 3 Super Bowl trophy. As each player made their way down the bus stairs, the coach hugged them and called them Super Bowl champions. This was the Eagles' first title in football and there will be a new banner going up in the gym for them.

Dave Morse is working on a master's degree.
Dave Morse will spend part of Super Bowl Sunday much like he did 10 times this fall. Using a notebook. The first-year Sharon High School varsity football head coach says he'll spend Sunday doing "homework all day, for my master's (degree) program." "I don't go out," Morse says of Super Bowl Sunday. "I sit on the couch. I keep it quiet. The last one, I watched the first half with my Dad and the second half by myself. "When I coach, I feel like I'm upbeat. I'm emotional. But with the Patriots, I constantly feel like I have a weight on my stomach. I get too nervous and too anxious." The New England Patriots and the New York Giants meet in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis at 6:30 p.m. Morse isn't nervous about the Patriots defense, which …

Eagles open season Saturday here with Dedham.
The Sharon High School varsity football season hinges on how the Eagles carry themselves as well as the ball. First-year head coach Dave Morse sees a more winning attitude in his locker room. The improved weight room the high school built during the last academic year has contributed to that change. The Eagles have worked out there extensively, he said. "Our seniors, they believe in themselves," said Morse, an assistant coach on last year's Sharon team, which went 1-9-1. "There's now a sense of accountability. If a kid didn't show up for lifting, his teammates are upset about it. There's no 'All right. Whatever.' That attitude has changed. Their toughness has changed. They're done making excuses. "We're not going to make excuses. If you …
