Decatur has now officially fallen into the category of great regular season team, but playoff flame out. The Eagles blew through their regular season schedule in 2006 going 10-0, but then suffered a stunning bi-district set back to Abilene Wylie. It had to be another in a string of curshing playoff losses for DHS who hasn't gotten past the third round in the Kyle Story era.
The Eagles offense will be led by the multi-talented RB Josh Trant who posted 630 rushing yards and 8 TD's, and 278 yards receiving and 4 TD's along with 3 kick return TD's. David Rigsby and Spencer Pryor anchor the Eagles offensive line as both were all-district in 2006.
The DHS defense is led by OLB Jose Lira who was a first team all 8-3A pick in 2006, on the other side is LB Justin Unger. The defensive line is led by DL Freddie Pacheco and DE Chase Villado. The secondary is a bit of a question mark heading into 2007.
Overall, Decatur should be very strong once again but are they built to win big games in November? That remains the burning question for Decatur going into the season.
