Dragon Football fans have yet another reason to be excited about the mysteries of next seasons post Kenny Hill era. After recently winning the 5A state UIL Cup for the second consecutive year, Southlake Carroll has added another championship trophy to the Dragon collection, winning the Division 1 Adidas 7 on 7 state tournament. After a fast pace weekend in which the Dragons went an undefeated 5-0 throughout the tournament, the Carroll Varsity 7 on 7 team completed the mission defeating a Houston Stratford team that finished runner up in the tournament for the second consecutive year, 46-27.
Led by first year junior quarterback Ryan Agnew, receiver Keaton Duhon and a playmaking defense that features returning starter Adaryan Jones, Steven Bergmark and J.B. Copeland, the Dragons were able to take home their second 7 on 7 state title in school history. Like most of the tournament the theme of blowouts seemed to be in full effect in the championship game, as the Dragons dominated a Stratford program that produced the likes of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. After scoring 28 unanswered points the Dragons took a commanding 40-13 lead as a result of a costly Stratford interception that was returned for a touchdown, the rest was history as Southlake cruised the rest of the way. Relying on a steady hand from quarterback Ryan Agnew, Southlake Carroll’s only test was provided by another Houston team, Cy Fair that resulted in a 40-33 win in the round of 16. Carroll’s veteran receiving core rose to the occasion as senior, Keaton Duhon led the way, followed by great production from returning starters Luke Timian, Ryan Weigel. Although this is just the tip of the iceberg things are looking bright in Dragon country.
