     HEBRON ESTATES -- Adam Billings believes he has a pretty good football team.

    But the first-year head coach wants his North Bullitt Eagles to be better. And he must convince the players that they want to be better.

    The Eagles will play at Fern Creek after moving past the Doss Dragons 34-6 on Friday.

It was more of the same in the fourth game as the home team jumped out to an early lead and then won 25-15.
