For most of the season, Prosper didn’t break a sweat. The Eagles had dominated in every game against District 14-5A opponents and looked primed to make a deep playoff run.
Things have changed after last week, when The Colony came to Prosper on a mission and came out with a 14-7 win. The game ended Prosper’s undefeated district record and knocked them out of second place in the district standings below Little Elm.
This week, Prosper is primed for a bounce-back win against Carrollton Creekview (0-8), a team having one of the worst seasons the district has seen in recent years. Creekview has lost each of their games by an average of 33 points and have struggled mightily on offense. In total, they have only two passing touchdowns all season and finished with 10 or fewer points in four of their eight games.
Based on past performance, Prosper could be in for a record-breaking performance. They’ve managed to win each of their district games by 35 points a piece and likely will not let up on the gas pedal against Creekview. The Eagles once scored 12 touchdowns in a game under coach Kent Scott in 2012 – they could be ready to break that record this week under head coach Brandon Schmidt.
Keep an eye out for Prosper getting back on track in the running game. The Colony was able to hold the offense to fewer than 100 yards rushing for the first time all season. Senior Kaleb Adams did not break the 50-yard mark and was held out of the end zone after entering with 18 total touchdowns on the year.
This game, as well as the final regular season game against Lake Dallas, will mean a lot for an Eagles team fighting for playoff seeding. There is a scenario in which a five-way tie could take place in the district by the end of the year. However, the Eagles controls their own destiny. If they win out, they are guaranteed a playoff spot.
Kickoff against Creekview is on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. CST
