The Abilene High Eagles started District 2-5A play with an impressive victory over Amarillo Tascosa on Friday night.

Both sides of the ball had their best game of the season at Shotwell Stadium.

The offense gained almost 400 yards and the defense forced 3 turnovers and scored.

The most important thing was they found out what it's like to win a game for the 1st time this year.

Coach Warren said, "The confidence level is huge in high school football, and it validates everything you are trying to do. Not that the kids don't believe in what we are doing. They obviously do, but in the back of their mind, after playing 2 really good football teams and being 0-2, you just start to doubt yourself, a little bit. You go back out. You execute well. You do the same things you been doing, but you do them a little bit better and come away with a win, so it makes everybody feel a lot better."

Abilene High tries to make it 2 in a row on Friday in Odessa against the Permian Panthers. Permian lost their district opener to Odessa High.
