Eagle Stadium in Allen, Texas is a marvel in the high school football landscape. The six-year old stadium cost 60 million dollars to build and has a capacity of 18-thousand. There are some colleges that would love to have a stadium like this, but there are many more colleges that would love to have a wide receiver like Allen’s Theo Wease. This six-foot-three-inch, 205-pound wideout is one of the country’s best playmakers. He can catch anything thrown his way, and jump balls? Forget about it. Having a talented quarterback certainly helps, and the bond that Wease has with Ole Miss commit Grant Tisdale makes them one of the nation’s most dangerous combinations.
The winning culture in the Allen program can’t be attributed to just one player, or even one class. The Eagles have won five state titles in the past ten years, including three straight when current Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray played here. The team also won it all last season, and Theo does all he can to make sure the standard at Allen stays high. As good as Theo’s leadership is on the field, it truly shines when he’s in the community. Theo volunteers with the local elementary schools, reading to children and inspiring future generations of Allen Eagles. Fueled by the support from his community, Theo’s hard work is paying off. Rivals ranks him as the nation’s number one wide receiver prospect.
He’s an Under-Armour All-American selection, and he’s committed to the Oklahoma Sooners. While he’s certainly moving to a bigger stage in Norman, the high expectations and winning culture will be just fine with Theo, who will want to impress his future fans as much as he does his current ones.
