The Argyle Eagles offense was very dominant throughout this season. This offense was led by a first-year junior quarterback in Bo Hogeboom, who gave an impressive performance with this being his first year. He completed 137 of his 233 pass attempts, throwing for 2533 yards, 37 touchdowns, six interceptions, and had a passer rating of 125.2. At times when the Eagles were on their way for a win, they would bring in Senior backup Hunter Martindale, who completed 28 of 47 passes and threw for 332 yards, three touchdowns, two interceptions, with a passer rating of 84.7.

Because of Hogeboom and Martindale’s great passing, was helped by the receiving core led by Senior and recent Texas Tech signee Dillon Carter who was very dominant throughout the game, were in his final season he had 39 receptions for 1085 yards and 18 touchdowns. Carter was not alone, Junior Alex Gonzales had 29 receptions for 491 yards and three touchdowns.

The Argyle running core was good throughout the season, and the primary back, Sophomore Tito Byce, was the catalyst for their success. Byce had run the ball 134 times and gaining 1063 yards, and 18 touchdowns. He also had six 100+ yard games. Byce was the first running back since Don Williams in 2016 to have over 1000 yards in a season. The second and third running backs for the Eagles were a good compliment to Byce. Junior Luke Farris had 90 carries for 527 yards and four touchdowns and Senior Noah Lang had 82 carries for 424 yards and five touchdowns.

The Eagles Black Swarm Defense was exceptional all through the season, and it was led by none other than Senior linebacker Chase Petter. Chase Petter was the only defensive player with over 100 tackles (102), and to have over 15 tackles for loss (19). he also led the team in sacks with 11.0. Senior Hayden Clearman, recent Abilene Christian University signee, was a key piece of the secondary for the Eagles, getting 75 tackles, one tackle for loss, and one interception. Recent University of Texas signee, Brenden Dixon, was a real problem for opposing quarterbacks in his final season, collecting five interceptions, and defending eight passes.

The Argyle Eagles special teams was excellent through and through, led by Senior Kicker Grant Shaw, who made every single extra point this year (69), and was 7-9 on field goals.

After completing their second consecutive undefeated regular season, the Argyle Eagles will square off against the 5-4 Ranchview Wolves, at Standridge Stadium, in Carrolton, Texas.
