RG #77 Teylor Doud: Soph. Big and strong lineman, will block down and push you back.  Must stay low.

Defensively the Bulldogs will feature a 4-3 scheme with a very athletic, strong and very quick defensive line.  The Bulldogs will substitute their defensive tackles frequently with Luis Olandez #93 (5’ 10”, 210 lbs.) and Eddie Ramon #61 (5’ 11”, 215 Lbs) starting in their regular package but when the go to their heavy package scheme Gerardo Lopez #66 (5’ 9”, 255 lbs.) and Moses Mendez #99 (5’ 11”. 305 lbs.) will enter the game.  The starting defensive ends Tony Rodriguez #34 and Jesus Munoz #60 are very quick and disciplined players.  The Bulldogs also feature a trio of solid linebackers who are the strength of their defense with the likes of Jordan Lopez #62, Trace Gagne #52 and Ethan Moya #2.  The Bulldogs secondary will be patrolled by Nathan Godinez #10 and Chismere Mallard #32 at the corners with Tripp Potter #21 and Zachary Garcia #18 at safeties.

The home standing Eagle Pass Eagles will counter with their explosive high powered offense that is equally as dangerous through the airway as it is through the ground showcasing their stellar running back Dee Andre Torres one of the premier running backs in the entire Region IV who has rushed for nearly 1200 yards and tallied 16 rushing touchdowns thus far.  Joining him in the backfield is stellar starting quarterback Richie Luna who has passed for nearly 1600 yards and has tossed a total of 12 touchdown passes.  The Eagles feature a quartet of very quick and sure handed wide receiving corps that can score from anywhere out on the field with the likes of multi-talented Jose Riojas, Norby Zavala and their twin towers Rey Mendoza and Albert Guevara.  The Eagles offensive front line of Jose Laguna, Alex Martinez, Jorge Guardado, Ray Galindo and Tito Villarreal will need to dominate in the trenches.

On the other side of the ball Eagles hard hitting “Land Sharks” defensive unit that is extremely tough against the run with their overall strength and quickness and never back down from any challenges will feature the likes of Sebastian Hernandez, Mario Torres, Manny Rodriguez, Moi Rocha, Armando Monsivais Roger Ulloa, David Kypuros, Haran Rodriguez, Kristian Barcena, Raul Lechler, Ryan Chisum, and Josh Monsivais will be armed and ready for the task of stopping the Bulldogs offense.
