2014 record: 10-2
Final 2014 Super 25: 33
The Eagles have a new coach in Todd Peterman, but little else changes. Peterman, the team’s offensive coordinator, replaces Claude Mathis, who left to become the running backs coach at SMU.
Tristen Wallace, a senior QB and Ohio State commit, returns. He’ll be able to throw to West Mesquite transfer Dee Anderson (46 catches, 748 yards and 14 receiving touchdowns), who has committed to LSU. Speedster RB La’Darren Brown, who has committed to Oklahoma State, is another key returnee.
The offensive line features two Texas State commits: TE Brenden Rushing and OL Josiah Washington.
The defensive backfield, led by Texas Tech commit Neiman Armstrong, is solid.
The Eagles get a big early test when they host No. 2 IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) on Sept. 5.
