"We have a target on our backs now." Richardson High head coach Kevin Lawon said. "We are not the underdogs anymore, we are the hunted."

Richardson's team does not have a lot of postseason experience, but the Eagles make up for that with a ton of talent in sophomores Rylan Griffen and Cason Wallace.

"We are real confident," said Wallace.

Wallace said he thinks the Eagles have what it takes to make a run to state.

"We think that we can win. We want to go to San Antonio, so anything we put our mind to, we achieve it," he said.
