What makes The Allen Eagles #1 in Texas
Winning tradition in Allen, Texas
- Won district title every season since 2006
- 4th high school in state history to win the state championship three years in a row (2012, 2013, 2014)
- 8-0 so far this season (10/24/16)
The Allen Eagles have a $60 million dollar stadium with the capacity of 18,000 fans. It’s a monument to high school football and stands as a testament to how important football is in Allen, TX. But as you know – football is all about winning.
All 8 games this season has been a blowout and you can’t steam roll opponents one a regular basis without having a stingy defense. In the last two weeks the Allen Eagles have outscored their opponents 101 – 14.
Looks as though most teams won’t even stand a chance against this freakishly talented squad, but they still need to show up and play – because after all, they didn’t build that big stadium for nothing.
Eagle’s running back Brock Sturges racked up 3 touchdowns on McKinney last Friday night. He averaged over 13 yards a carry and personally outscored the entire McKinney offense. The final score was 59 -7.
We had a chance to interview Brock earlier this month and when we asked if he thought his Allen Eagles could beat #1 team in the country, Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) this was his response:
“both are great teams and two great programs and here at Allen we try not focus on that we just control what we can control and everything will fall into place we don’t get caught up in who’s the better team we just play our game.”
He’s already handling the tough questions like a pro, the coaches over in Allen have to be proud!
We look forward to following the Allen Eagle throughout the playoff and in the mean time you can follow Brock on Twitter @
