Eagles Drop Game, Finish Season As Regional Semi-Finalist
December 6, 2019
The Argyle Eagles finished their season tonight after losing to rival Waco La Vega 44-20. This was the fourth time the two teams have met in the last four seasons, with La Vega beating the Eagles last year before being named state champions. However, coming into tonight’s game, La Vega was 12-1 with their lone loss being to Argyle. The Eagles fought hard yet were unable to come out on top at the end.
Although the Eagles season came to an end earlier than anticipated, this past season was still one for the books in more ways than one. Sixteen football players made the Academic All-State Team. Two players broke school records: Senior quarterback Bo Hogeboom broke the school record for most touchdown passes in a game (8) and passing yards in a game (448). Junior wide receiver Cole Kirkpatrick broke school records for most touchdown receptions in a game (5), receiving yards in a game (290) and receiving yards in a season (1498). Several players also received nominations for state honors such as the SportsDay Hero Poll and Mr. Texas Football Player of the Week.
Congratulations on another incredible season filled with many amazing honors and awards!
