The New Look Eagles????
The Allen Eagles are looking to defend their 6A title but they will have to do so with some new faces. Allen has one starter returning from last year’s championship squad, 3⭐️⭐️⭐️ point guard Isaiah Stevens (Colorado State commit).Stevens may be the only returner but this may be a more talented team than the one last year. Senior Korey Jones, a top 200 prospect in the state, will be counted on to help Stevens lead the young Eagles. SG. Thailand Elder, SF. Manny Obaseki, Guard Mason Gibson and Forward Bryce Kennedy, are all underclassmen. They are also each ranked in the state for their respected classes. Allen will have to get through some tough teams to capture the state title. South Garland and Denton Guyer are two powerhouses in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Their task for a two-peat will not be easy, but do not underestimate the talented Eagles.
Top Players :
Isaiah Stevens / 5’11” / PG / Allen / 2019
Stevens is a poised point guard, who has a tight handle and can shoot it well off the dribble. Isaiah is never rattled on the court and has a high basketball IQ. You will rarely see this kid make mistakes on the offensive end. He is a winner and a great leader on and off the court. He will make sure that his teammates are prepared to defend their title.
Thailand Elder / 6’1″ / SG / Allen / 2020
Elder is a gritty two-way player that scores well in transition. He is also hard to guard in the half court setting because he knows how to find holes in the defense to attack the rim. Elder is a really good on-ball defender that will be counted on to guard the opposing team’s best player.
