Saturday, February 10, 2018--
The Texas War Eagles started the 2018 MPFL season with a pre-season win over the #7 ranked Dallas Vikings.
The War Eagle defense was the star of the show holding the Viking offense to only 40 net yards for the game. The defense also had a total of 6 sacks and two interceptions.
Matthew Saldana threw a 32-yard pass to James Taylor for the War Eagles to take a 6 - 0 lead in the first quarter.
James McGue scored on a strip-sack in the second quarter to make it 12-0.
The War Eagles will open the MPFL regular season on the road against the Arlington Mustangs on March 3rd.
The DeSoto Golden Eagles return to the MPFL under a new name. Now the Texas War Eagles, they look to continue to build upon 8-3 overall record from 2017.
"It was time to brand something bigger", says franchise owner Rodney Fisher.
"DGE was a learning experience for me and I'm very proud of what we did last year. This year, I wanted to build a bigger, faster, better version of the Eagles. This year, WAR is coming."
Alex Ovallaes returns as head coach along with a new coaching staff. The #2 ranked defense in 2017 returns with big additions. The War Eagles also have a new backfield, wide receivers, and a new dynamic quarterback.
They start MPFL competition earlier than most by scheduling the Dallas Vikings on Saturday, February 10th.
