Notes:
* will have a new head coach this year for the first time in four decades as Patrick Brown takes over for the legendary Allan Sepkowitz

  • Mike Says: The Eagles only return 7 total starters and will have a new coach this year. The strength of their team last year was their defense which stepped up big last year only giving up 67 in 7 district games. Look for them to go 6-4 or 7-3 in the regular season and fight El Paso Chapin and Burges for the district title. Once in the playoffs, they should go 1 or 2 rounds.
  • Chris Says: El Paso Andress should make the playoffs but it is unlikely they will win district 1-4A.  Ryan Mertz will bring some stability to a team with a lot of new faces, including Head Coach, Patrick Brown.  Anytime a first time coach enters a program, it has potential to turn out dramatically different - in either direction.  His experience at El Paso Franklin should translate into wins though.  Expect the Eagles to have a few hiccups early in the season, but catch their groove as they head into playoffs and have a strong postseason showing.
