  • Mike Says: The Eagles made it to the Semifinals for the 1st time in school history last year. This years team brings 8 starters on defense led by Nick Orr who is one of the best DB’s in the state. They lost a lot on offense including 4 starting offensive linemen. They do bring back though a very exciting QB in Desmon White. They have lots of team speed which will help them to another great season. Their schedule includes for sure games of the week against Euless Trinity and Cedar Hill. Look for them to go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season and quite possibly a back to back trip to the semifinals.
  • Chris Says: What do you think I'm going to say about the DeSoto Eagles?  They suck?  Uh no!  Of course, I'm going to say this is an excellent team.  Yes, they did lose a lot to graduation but they are still packed with talent and still odds on favorite to win District 7-5A.  The road to a title though still runs right through the Allen Eagles.  Can I just say there will be an Eagles team in the title game?  I just don't think its going to be DeSoto.
