What a difference a week of practice can make. After the sting of an Argyle punch of 56-9, the DHS Eagles responded in a big way with no response from the Alvarado Indians. Decatur put up 47 unanswered points to the Indians last Friday, and looks to do the same tonight against the Midlothian Heritage Jaguars. Led by sophomore quarterback, Preston Escobar, senior wide receiver, David Juarez, and junior running back, Kameron Ferguson, the DHS Eagles started fast and never looked back. 

“We really didn’t get to open up our playbook against Argyle because of all the circumstances we were going through,” Furgeson said. “Against Alvarado we got to run a lot more, and we were really successful.”

Decatur wants to keep the momentum going tonight against Midlothian Heritage, which poses another tough test for this young Eagles team. 

“We have to come in and keep working because we have a lot to improve on,” Furgeson said. “If we want to be as good as we want, we have to keep committing ourselves to become better.”
