6A Allen, ranked No. 10 in the state, is coming into Week 2 on a high from their 56-30 win over Plano East. Allen's new quarterback, Michael Hawkins, has a lot to look forward to in this matchup. Hawkins will be put to the true test against Atascocita, but with Jaylen Jenkins in his offense, it shouldn't be too hard to overcome the adversity of his second start. Jenkins helped lead Allen to the 22nd consecutive win over Plano East with 204-rushing yards and three touchdowns. Allen has never lost in their stadium, so you can expect them to defend it with their full force.
Atascocita is coming in as the No. 6 ranked 6A team in the state. With a 48-7 win over Klein Collins, there's no doubt that the Eagles are ready to continue action with an ambition to continue scoring. The Eagles have a strong offense led by quarterback Gavin Session who is no stranger to facing a strong Allen team.
Allen met Atascocita in the 2020 season where Gavin Session totaled 498 yards (330 passing). Ultimately, Allen won 52-27. Although Atascocita is looking for revenge in this meeting, expect Allen to fully rise to the challenge.
