The Linden Eagles History was organized by Eugene Crockett, William Harris, Booker Jones, Curtis O. Law, and several other gentlemen, who became Head Football Coaches of the Association. The Mission and Vision of the Association were to help young people to build Self-Development, Self-Respect, and Self-Worth through Sports Leadership programming, such as: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Cheerleading, Drill Team, and Hula Hoop.
As the Linden Eagles’ popularity continued, and the Sporting Program begin to mature, several additional Men began to step into Leadership Positions of the Association. Such Coaches as; James E. Oden, George Walker, Sr., James Green, Bolitho Dorsey, Bill Goodman, Tim Howell, Leonard Reeves, Margie Parker, and Ernest Carter. Wives of all coaches and mothers in the community came together to supply love, hugs, snacks and words of encouragement. Mr. Tim Mohr, owner of the IGA Grocery, on 18th and Cleveland Avenue, donated funds for the Linden Eagles to travel to Florida for the National Youth Football Championship. Family Owned, Woody’s Carry-Out at 22nd and Hamilton Avenue, for many years, provided snacks and sodas for the concession stands to help raise money for the Sporting Program.
The Eagles, as they were called, became a powerful force in the Central Ohio area both on the field and off during the late 1960s and throughout the 1990s. On the field, the Eagles dominated youth football by obtaining several Undefeated and No-scoring game seasons, and players were known for playing both Defense and Offense. Their popularity became so prominent, several of the Business Owners in the Linden Community began to donate money for them to purchase uniforms, and to travel to Florida, Washington D.C. and other locations for the Annual National Youth Football Championships. In addition to Football, the Eagles’ Soni Motley, won the City, State, District, Regional, and 4th In-the-National titles for the Hula Hoop Contest representing the State of Ohio.
With over 4,000 Youth participating in the Association, these Men and Women had the rule of discipline on their side to make sure the Eagles where respected and gave respect while playing in the Sports Program. The Young Men and Women in the program became the pillars of the neighborhood by proceeding onto Amateur, College, and Professional Sports Programs, receiving Scholarships, College Degrees, enlisting in the U.S. Military, and obtaining Professional Careers throughout the United States.
