A Dragon Pride For All Seasons

It isn’t long after moving to this city before the culture of high school sports in Southlake strikes a chord. In fact, for some that chord is struck looking for a home specifically for its school district’s athletic and extracurricular prowess. Three-peat UIL dominance can make believers out of entire families and by most accounts, sell some serious real estate in the process.

In the Fall of 2006, Southlake Style published the first ever Dragon Pride issue as a special edition. Albeit small in comparison to later issues, it was an immediate hit within the community. Over the years the issue evolved and spread its wings to cover the teams and clubs that elevate the entire Dragon Football experience. Eventually, one season led to another and in 2012 Dragon Pride officially launched its first Spring edition. In doing so, we were able to give some long overdue attention to many deserving athletes and coaches.

Despite 176 pages over two editions in 2014, Dragon Pride (the magazine) still left a little Dragon Pride (the feeling) on the table. And that brings us to what you are now holding in your hands—our first ever Winter edition. This year we will we publish three distinct issues—A Dragon Pride for all seasons, if you will.

It takes a special community of athletes, supportive adults and coaches to fill the pages of Southlake’s devoted sports publication year after year. It also takes a special community of area businesses to financially support this totally free magazine.

I consider myself grateful, as I hope everyone in Dragon Nation does, for the opportunity to be a part of this special magazine. I believe you would be hard pressed to find another devoted high school publication of this caliber, in content and in spirit, anywhere else in the country. Our student athletes, readers and supporters deserve nothing less.

Yours in Dragon Pride,
