  • Mike Says: The Eagles had a difficult season last year scoring only 33 points in 4 district games. Only 17 lettermen return and no all-district players. It will be another challenging year. Look for them to go 2-8 or 1-9 this season. Expect some progress but they have a long way to go.
  • Chris Says: Hillsboro was not as bad as their record last season.  District 17-3A has some seriously tough teams and while I don't see the Eagles competing for a district title anytime soon, they could surprise a few teams this year.  A good season for them would be 3 or 4 wins - a great one would be 5 wins and a playoff berth.  If Coach Mike Palmer can instill some belief in the players early along with some leadership from his returning starters, the Eagles could turn things around.
