Key Players:
* QB/DB Jacob Cole DIST OFF MVP & 1st Team All-District DB 1,174 yards passing 1,113 yards rushing
* WR/DB Cameron Englishbee 1st Team All-District DB 511 yards receiving
* RB/LB Sam Shirley 781 yards rushing 137 tackles
* LB SOPH Tristan Shearman

Notes:
* Will be under a new head coach this year with former defensive coordinator stepping up
* His defense shut out every district opponent last year
* Have had 10+ wins 7 out of last 10 years

  • Mike Says: The Eagles do not bring back many lettermen from last years 10-3 Quarterfinals team. They do bring back Jacob Cole though who will lead the way on both sides of the ball. Look for them to have a great season and finish the regular season at 7-3 or 8-2 and win the district championship. Once in the playoffs they should go to at least the Regionals with tough regional competition from Corsicana Mildred and Gunter.
  • Chris Says: Coach Cody Patton takes over in Holliday in a pretty good situation.  He steps up from coaching the defense, which means he understands the program and the kids understand him already - that is good.  He takes over a program that rolled through district last year - where his defense gave us ZERO points!!  He knows how to stop his District 5-2A Division DII opponents.  The Eagles will win district again, although it is unlikely they will hold everyone to ZERO points once again (I just had to mention it one more time!)  Holliday will have a great playoff run once again and Coach Patton's offense can live up to his defense (did I mention ZERO points scored against them in district?) they could have a season to remember!
