  • Mike Says: The Eagles have a great winning tradition and will continue that success this year. Everyone will be checking out their sparkling new stadium. Look for them to go 9-1 or 8-2 in the regular season. They have some great non-district games against Southlake Carroll and Cedar Hill that will get them ready for the playoffs. Once in the playoffs, Region II is loaded with great teams so expect them to go 2 or 3 rounds.
  • Chris Says: Allen has been the most popular football program in Texas this offseason - thanks to their $60m stadium.   The Eagles have a lot more going for them than a great home field advantage, the are a quality program just a few years removed from a state title.  The are bringing back an amazing 33 veterans from last season (although very few starters.)  Coach Tom Westerberg understands winning and has done it consistently throughout his career.  The Allen community absolutely loves and supports their Eagles.  What else could they need?  Some playoff wins.  The Eagles will do well this season and will likely go farther than they managed last year, but I don't see them going past three rounds.
