Entering the 2020 football season, the most common question surrounding a talent-laden Eastland football team won’t be whether or not the Mavericks will qualify for the playoffs. The key question will be, how far will they get in postseason play?
The only group of players who can answer that question might be on a rebuilt EHS offensive line, behind which the Mavs will boast one of the top groups of skill players in the Big Country.
Texas Tech-bound senior quarterback Behren Morton (173-of-287, 2,754 yards, 29 TDs) will return to guide the Eastland spread attack, which has scored more than 900 combined points over the past two seasons. He will be flanked by 225-pound running back Brandon Fielding (1,115 yards rushing, 14 TDs, 20 catches, 176 yards, two TDs), with several capable receivers to choose from, including seniors Dylan Wilson (27 catches, 319 yards, two TDs) and Peyton McClain (12 catches, 344 yards, two TDs).
