2008 State Championship
Class 5A Division I

Allen Eagles vs. Fort Bend Hightower Hurricanes

December 20, 2008
Reliant Stadium

Tied at 7, while Hightower had been dominating the Eagles the entire game, with less than ten mintues to play in the State Championship game, Allen quickly felt all the momentum swing their way.

With 9:17 left in the game, Allen's Jr. LB #40 Mitch Hartshorne intercepted an A.J. Highsmith pass intended for Darius Johnson, and returned it 25 yards into Hightower territory.

The very next play, Allen's Sr. WR #22 Marcus Thomas was found wide open down the left sideline, catching a Tucker Carter pass, and "waltzing" into the endzone.

After a Cody Phillips PAT, these two perfect plays gave Allen their first lead all game, 14-7, with barely 9 minutes remaining.

Allen went on and scored their very next drive (I also uploaded this video) and only allowed Hightower to score once more, with a final score of:

Allen: 21
Hightower: 14

.....making the 2008 Allen Eagles the Texas State Champions!
