In Allen’s last home game of the regular season, the district champion Allen Eagles routed the Plano East Panthers by a score of 56-30. The win leaves them with a perfect record of 9-0 with one game remaining,

The Allen offense shined both on the ground and through the air, racking up 558 total yards and eight touchdowns. Although the team pulled the starters at the end of the third quarter, senior running back Brock Sturges lead the charge with 119 rushing yards and two touchdowns on just 13 carries.

“[We] were just doing our assignments,” senior wingback Jack Fee, who caught a touchdown, said. “Hitting plays fast and just executing at a higher level than we have the last couple of weeks.”

Junior quarterback Grant Tisdale, coming off of a Ford Tough Player of the Week trophy, passed for 206 yards and three touchdowns on just 15 attempts. Senior wide receiver Carson Schleker was the leading receiver on the night, collecting 105 yards on five receptions for one touchdown.

“We’ve really been working [on our passing attack],” senior tight end Andrew Magee, who caught a touchdown, said. “Doing pass protection after practice, just making sure that we get our guy.”

The Allen secondary added another lock-down performance to their season, only allowing 221 passing yards to East to make it nine-straight games that they’ve held the opponent to less than 225-yards passing.

“[Winning tonight] meant a lot,” senior defensive back Alex Schneider said. “Just walking around after getting the win, seeing my parents my parents smiling at me. It felt good to come in here and get a lot of points for Adam Garry since he’s our fallen brother. It meant a lot to me.”

The Eagle front seven controlled the pace of the game all night, dominating the line of scrimmage and putting consistent pressure on the Panther’s quarterback. The Eagles allowed 136 rushing yards at just 3.8 yards per attempt, and they didn’t allow East to gain a first down until there was 1:20 left in the first quarter.

“We just focus on who we’ve got to beat every week,” senior linebacker Ryan Angeloni. “We don’t look ahead, we don’t look at the playoffs. We just focus on this week and this opponent.”

Next week the Eagles will take on the Wylie Pirates at Wylie. Keep up with all the action by staying here on The Eagle Angle or by following our Twitter, @theeagleangle.
