  • Mike Says: The Eagles only being back 6 starters from last years Semifinal team but they will still be very good. Their defense will be one of the regions best led by linebacker Lucas. Look for them to go 10-0 or 9-1 in the regular season and win the district title. Newton will give them the toughest competition in the region. Expect a trip to at least the Quarterfinals.
  • Chris Says: Tatum is one of those teams that doesn't rebuild, they just reload.  You don't average 11 wins a season as coach Andy Evans has done over the last 8 years without some sort of magic.  These Eagles have that magic.  The don't return a lot of starters (on 3 on each side) but will roll through district regardless.  Regionals are nearly guaranteed come playoff time, and after that - who knows.
