The Eagles will entertain Caldwell Saturday morning at 9:00 a.m. in Lexington for the first interschool scrimmage allowed by UIL rules. The Hornets return four offensive starters and five defensive starters from last season’s 9-2 team.

The Hornets went undefeated in district action, posting a perfect 6-0 record. They won the first playoff game against Cleveland 20- 13. Caldwell played state champion Carthage toe-to-toe for a while before succumbing 56-41 in one of the highest scoring games in the playoffs.

Caldwell runs the winged-T offense in the same manner Liberty Hill does. The Hornets have been very successful since they converted to the old but potent offense.

Admission to the scrimmage is free, but Coach Jason Holcomb is asking everyone who comes to the scrimmage to bring a bar of soap or a towel as your admission to a scrimmage that may be as competitive as any game the Eagles play in the regular season.
