District 7-6A Football Preview - Colleyville

Sep 18, 2014 11:35AM ● Published by Mike

A new era is slated to begin at Colleyville Heritage as Doug Allman takes over as the team’s new head coach. Allman is coming over from Austin Westlake, one of the state’s most respected programs, where he was named district coach of the year twice. Allman replaces Mike Fuller, who bolted for the head-coaching job at Decatur after posting a 60-19 record in seven seasons at Colleyville Heritage. So what can you expect form an Allman-coached team? Well, a little bit of everything. Allman uses an array of formations to best utilize his talent on the field. His No. 1 priority will be finding a new quarterback — seniors Clayton Oliver and Trevor Anderson will battle it out for the job but neither has much meaningful experience. The Panthers do, however, bring back seven starters on offense including big, bruising running back DeMarco Corbin. The 6-foot-1, 225-pounder was used mostly in short-yardage and goal line situations last season — he scored 16 touchdowns —but will see an expanded role in 2014. The defense also returns seven starters. Under Allman, Colleyville Heritage is expected to implement a 3-4 scheme, which will showcase the talents of defensive lineman Jason Williams (62 tackles, four sacks) and safety Ryan Phillippe (107 tackles, four interceptions).
