BRYAN, TX -- The Brazos Christian Eagles have some holes to fill lost to graduation but expect to be in the thick of things for a district title and a deep run in the playoffs again in 2012.

Brazos Christian elevated assistant and five year NFL veteran Brandon Green to the head coaching position this spring. Boyd Brigman shifts to the offensive coordinator role after accumulating a 65-43 record as head coach of the Eagles.

The offensive line will be the strength of the Eagles as they start the new season, returning three starters, including Kolby Kahlden and Ryan Baron who earned all-state honors a year ago.

Gentry Gale returns as quarterback but loses some of his big-time weapons with the graduation of Brad Brown and Jaxton McNair.

Justin Duewall is the only other returning skill position player. On defense four starters return, and the secondary will have the most experience with Eric Lucas and Kenny Honnas back at corner and Will McCurdy returning at safety.

TAPPS will have a new look in 2012, dropping a classification and going with just three divisions. The Eagles will be joined in District 5 by crosstown rival St. Joseph in Division III, along with Sacred Heart, Shiner St. Paul, New Braunfels John Paul II, and San Antonio St. Gerard. Brazos Christian should challenge perennial power Sacred Heart and Shiner St. Paul for the district title and reach the playoffs for the fourth straight season.
