According to the BSA’s Eagle Scout fact sheet, only five percent of Boy Scouts across the country in 2010 earned their Eagle.
Don’t tell those odds to six Scouts from the Pine Island District, South Florida Council, where six — count ’em, six — kids, each of whom joined Scouting together as Tiger Cubs, have all earned their Eagle rank.
The Scouts — Tyler Drake, Brad Harris, Nicholas Bauer, Bret McAlpin, Derek Duncan and Ryan Bessemer — from Troop 406 in Davie, Fla., say they all agreed at a young age that they would go for their Eagles. Amazingly, each one of them made it.
