  • Mike Says: Allen won their 2nd championship in 5 years last year. They were led by now JR QB Kyler Murray and he is back this year better than ever. They are the 2nd largest school in the state and graduated 56 lettermen. An amazing 41 lettermen return though and bring plenty of speed, size and strength. They have some great games against Coppell, Southlake Carroll & Cedar Hill. They may stumble in one of those games but only 1 and that will be it for the year. This is your Class 5A Division I Championship team.
  • Chris Says: It seems that Allen already has been awarded the 2013 crown  - at least that's what most of the sports writers are saying.  And why not?  The Eagles return 41 lettermen.  Sure, that's a ton of lettermen - but they have half a gazillion students.  What folks are not noticing is that only 3 of their starting offense comes back this year.  I think I am the only one in the state not willing to start fitting them for rings just yet.  They will have a great season, no doubt.  I just don't think it ends like it did last season.
