Notes:
Once known for the area's abundance of pear trees, it is now more popular for the petroleum industry and football. Pearland Dawson is relatively new, but they are already getting well known for their football. The Eagles made it to the semifinals on only their 2nd year of varsity play last season. With just 20 lettermen and 8 starters returning it will be very difficult to get a repeat performance. WR Vaughn will be even more of a focus on offense while the defense may have to carry the team early on led by DL Seals. Expect the Eagles to go 7-3 or 8-2 in the regular season and fight Friendswood for the district title. Once in the playoffs they would be a good Area or Regional team.
