BRYAN, Texas -- The Eagles have six starters coming back on offense and seven on defense as they look to finish the job and bring home a state championship.

Brazos Christian will be strongest on the line, as both guards and tackles are coming back, led by all-state tackle Cole Elms. John Mather returns for his junior season, and will have plenty of experience after quarterbacking the Eagles to the title game as a sophomore. Mather loses Kenny Honnas in the backfield, but Jesse Honnas returns after an all-state campaign. Honnas is an all-state linebacker as well, and will be joined by Mitch Holt to form two-third of a solid linebacking corps. Elms, Luke Thomas, and Brady Gayle are all back on the line, leaving the secondary, other than corner-back Colin Lee, as the area of the defense that needs the most improvement.

Having five of the front seven back will help against a new district Green says runs the spread offense more than the one BCS played in last sea-son. That district includes crosstown rival St. Joseph and Bay Area Christian, the team the Eagles beat in the state semifinals a year ago. “Our goal is to get into the play-offs,” said Green. “Fans will see men that work hard striving for excellence and to reflect Jesus Christ through their attitudes.”
