Mike Says: We picked Euless Trinity #1 in our pre-season poll.  The rest of the state picked Allen.  Everyone will be watching this matchup.  Last years game at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington ranks #8 all-time in Attendance.  40,000 showed up. Look for this one to have at least that.  Allen has been squeaking by teams this year while Euless has been taking care of business like usual.  The TROJANS win 28-17!!!

Chris Says:  This is the one that I have been waiting for.  This is the one where the Euless Trinity naysayers have to change their tune and jump on the bandwagon.  Expect the Allen bandwagon to empty as the TROJANS WIN 42-38!!!!

    This is a tough game to predict. Euless Trinity has a solid ground game, without much of a passing game at all. If Allen can defend the run and / or jump out to an early lead, it could mean victory for the Eagles. But their run defense has been poor all year. Not much pressure up front, and lackluster tackling has been a significant shortcoming. Although both teams come into this game undefeated, the Trojans haven’t had a very tough year. Only 4 teams in district 6 even had winning records. If it comes down to a high scoring shootout, I’ll take the Eagles with their balanced offense. QB Morris is an excellent passer. And their RB Williams is exceptionally strong. I predict Euless Trinity will score the same amount as last year but Allen puts up one more TD to win it 42 – 37.

    Looks like we called it again. Euless Trinity takes the win 28-21!!! Congratulations to the Trojans. Everyone (except) LSG has been saying that Allen is the better team this year, but like we said before the season began, “Euless is the team to beat.”
