DeSoto Ranked #5 As Having The Toughest Schedule In The Country

The DeSoto Eagles were listed at #5 by MaxPreps as having the tougest schedule in the country. They take on several of the best teams in Texas and have a big out of state clash in pre-district.

The Eagles start off with Arlington Martin who is ranked #16 in the state in our pre-district polls. After that they take on out of state power Eastern Christian, MD who was ranked #1 in this poll as having the toughest schedule in the country. Their 3rd game is against Dallas South Oak Cliff which is a 5A team but no less a challenge as they are ranked #8 in that class. Cibolo Steele is 4th on the schedule and they are our #10 team.

The big match up everyone is waiting on is their 8th game of the year when they take on defending state champs Cedar Hill. Cedar Hill is ranked #2 in the nation by MaxPreps while the Eagles are not far behind at #15.

The Eagles will be tested come playoff time and will be a tough out.
