With only three games left in the regular season, the Eagles are heading into the game with a 6-1 record, while the Bengals are heading in with a 2-5 record. Overall, the Eagles are ranked higher, within the state at 11 and the Bengals at 93, according to MaxPreps. Similar to last week, Prosper is going into the game with a higher record overall.

Against Boyd, the Eagles connected on the offense, being able to put up 49 points against the Broncos. The defense also was able to stop the Bronco offense, only letting them put up 16 points within the first half, then not letting them score in the second. If the Eagles continue with this pattern, tomorrow will be a good game.

Last year when Braswell and Prosper faced off, the Eagles won 38-17. Overall, the Eagles should be able to connect on the offense against Braswell, with senior quarterback Harrison Rosar leading. Rosar has been able to complete passes to senior wide receiver Hunter Summers throughout the season, who has been responsible for 13 touchdowns for the Eagles this season. Summers has had 744 yards this season as well.

On Braswell’s side, senior wide receiver Ja’ryan Wallace is heading into the game with 882 yards, which proves Braswell’s offense to also be strong.

The Eagles’ defense is coming into the game stronger than ever, with two interceptions and tackles by multiple defensive players that were able to stop the Bronco offense.

With this momentum, the Eagles are ready for a good matchup against the Bengals to start to close out the season.
