Barbers Hill is a team on the brink of greatness heading into the 2019 season. Having gone 7-4 last season with a close loss to Nederland (21-27) and a respectable showing against district champion Port Neches-Groves (14-31) the Eagles will be a team on the march.
Returning 32 lettermen and 11 starters, head coach Tom Westerberg could have his best team yet.
"We've got a great group of receivers," said Westerberg, entering his fourth season at Barbers Hill.
"Our offensive line is bigger than we've ever had. Our quarterback will be Conner Dunham, who had a great game against Manvel in the playoffs, so we're excited about our offense."
Dunham threw for 388 yards against a high respected Manvel team but the Mavericks won the game with a 62-42 win.
The bus rides up and down Interstate 10 will be interesting as the district that combines east Houston and Southeast Texas will be up for grabs.
