Abilene High head coach Mike Fullen and his team battled through Covid-19 and Fullen’s colon cancer treatments in 2020 to get back into the postseason for the first time since 2016.
This year, the Eagles are hoping to make it back to back playoff appearances, and they want to improve on their fourth place finish in district play.
The Eagles schedule includes five home games and five road games.
It’s starts on August 27 on the road against Amarillo Tascosa.
That game is followed by the Crosstown Showdown and Cedar Park Vista Ridge at Shotwell Stadium.
Back to back road games come next. The Eagles go to Grand Prairie and district starts on the road at Odessa Permian.
They play newly named Midland Legacy, formerly Midland Lee, at home the next week.
Abilene High then goes on the road to play Frenship after their open date, at home against Odessa High, back west to play Midland High, and the Eagles finish the season at San Angelo Central.
