Saturday in Frisco might have been rainy, but not for the 2022-23 DeSoto Eagles as they dismantled Denton Guyer with a 47-28 victory. The intensity from the front seven of the Eagles befuddled Denton Guyer’s Five-Star quarterback and Oklahoma commit Jackson Arnold all night long.

The Eagles are on a run!

DeSoto’s running game was impeccable as the Eagles rushed for 437 yards. Deondrae Riden led the charge with 224 yards and two touchdowns in the game. Tre Wisner and Jaden Trawick were both able to slip and slide past defenders with their amazing speed and power. The Eagles quarterback Darius Bailey used his legs to run for 78 yards and score two touchdowns. Bailey was also able to complete 10 passes and a touchdown as well. His main targets were Cedric Harden and the explosive Five-Star Texas commit Jontay Cook.
