Quotable Tanner Creel: "Our Elite team at Eagle Spirit Academy is amazing. This year we had 24 team members ranging in age from 8 to 21. I feel fortunate to have such great coaches and fighters to train with. One of my favorite parts of being on the elite team is the opportunity to mentor younger/newer team members.
