H-J Head Coach Oscar Castillo  told the Ft. Worth Telegram-Star after the game

“I’m just proud of these boys. I told them to listen to the people that cared about you and themselves and not all the outside stuff. I just hope they take that with them beyond this.”

Next week the Eagles will try to make in two in a row when they face North Dallas.
