how Riley has already won When the position of head football coach in Southlake became available there was no shortage of qualified applicants. And why would there be? A historically successful program from a top performing school district wrapped up in a highly desirable community definitely brought out the best of applicants. Among the applicants there was no one, (and I mean no one) who knew more about the program and its expectations on players (class of 2007) and coaches (son of a Texas legend) than Riley Dodge. Speaking from experience, when you love what you do business is pleasure and work isn’t really work at all. And all he’s done since day one is roll up his sleeves and get to work with a level of enthusiasm of anyone new to their dream job. The Xs and Os are inside, along with our player profiles on the team’s top performers and playmakers — like Will Bowers and TJ McDaniel who also grace this year’s cover. What many may miss from the sidelines is how quickly and aptly Coach Dodge has stepped into the role of community leader. A must for any reputable Texas high school football coach — and doubly so in Southlake. Outside the lines, I’ve personally seen him attend Chamber of Commerce functions, charity functions, pep rallies, community rallies, breakfast meetings, youth football games and he even graciously agreed to take part in our Dragon Pride dunk tank in support of the Carroll Athletic Booster Club. The second era of Dodgeball is off and running, and based on what he’s up to in our community alone, Riley Dodge is already a winner.

Yours in Dragon Pride,

THE NEW DODGE OFFENSE TAKES SHAPE

T

he Dragons will have a new face offensively as former state-winning quarterback Riley Dodge takes over as head coach and brings along a newlook staff led by offensive coordinator Marshall Williams, who arrives at Carroll from Fort Worth Brewer. Dodge, who spent the past two seasons as a quarterbacks coach at Marcus and offensive coordinator at Justin Northwest, noted the Dragons will attempt to stress opposing defenses with their up-tempo philosophy. While under Dodge’s direction, the Justin Northwest Texans averaged better than 38 points per game and scored at least 44 points on six occasions. Fitness will perhaps be even more vital than in years past as Dodge believes in minimizing substitution and personnel changes to keep the defense on its heels. That’s not to say Carroll won’t employ numerous formations, however. Versatility in skill sets among the starting unit will be held in high regard. Fortunately, Carroll has key players, and college caliber ones at that, returning at the skill positions and giving the Dragons a leg up in their transition to the new offense. Last year, firstyear starters Will Bowers (quarterback) and TJ McDaniel (running back) led a Carroll attack that posted 35.2 points and 429 yards per game as the Dragons made a run to the fourth round of the playoffs following a 7-3 regular season. Carroll scored at least 28 points in all four playoff games and was never held to fewer than 20 points in any contest with a season high of 51 in a district win over Lewisville. The Dragons were also fairly balanced, throwing for 184 yards per game while rushing for 244 yards per contest with 30 touchdowns through the air and 35 on the ground.

SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

Bowers, now a senior, was a big reason why – as he not only threw for 2,519 yards and 30 touchdowns (against nine interceptions), but chipped in 878 yards rushing (6.1 per carry) with an additional eight scores en route to First Team District 5-6A honors. Dodge believes the running ability of Bowers will be critical to Carroll’s ability to consistently move the football. That proved to be the case in Carroll’s season-opening win over South Grand Prairie, 25-8, when Bowers actually paced the squad with 104 rushing yards on 14 carries with a touchdown. McDaniel, meanwhile, was a revelation in the Dragons’ backfield in 2017 after spending much of his time as an underclassmen at Coppell in the secondary. As a junior, the transfer burst on the scene to First Team All-District honors and was among the leaders in the Metroplex after rushing for 1,862 yards on 237 carries (7.9 per attempt) with 23 touchdowns to go with 181 receiving yards and another score. McDaniel’s numbers could have been even loftier, potentially even surpassing 2,000 yards on the season, were he not injured late in Carroll’s playoff run. The senior — and younger brother of former Coppell standouts and collegiate running backs Cam (Notre Dame) and Gavin (Washington) — will also enter his 2018 campaign sans any recruiting distractions as he has already committed to play at the next level at SMU. In the first game of the season, McDaniel picked up where he left off, with 90 rushing yards and a score. While McDaniel has obviously demonstrated his athletic ability virtue of a Division I scholarship, his gaudy stats would not have been possible without a Carroll offensive line that produced five All-District performers, including three first-teamers. One of those, senior Henry Mossberg, is back to anchor Carroll in the trenches in 2018, while secondteam choices Cameron Hataway (senior) and Andrej Karic (junior) also return. Dodge notes he has been more than pleased with the cohesion and gelling he has seen from the new-look unit, which now also features junior starters Addison Penn and Brandon Barrasso. Against South Grand Prairie, the line had no problem moving a strong and physical Warriors’ defense off the ball.

FALL '18 • 13


The result was a 191-yard effort at nearly five yards per carry. The biggest shoes to fill for the Dragons may come at receiver after Carroll graduates its top two pass catchers in first-teamers Cade Bell, who had team-highs of 55 receptions, 884 receiving yards, and Hudson Shrum (25 receptions, 300 yards, three touchdowns), as well as First Team tight end Jacob Doddridge (six catches, 43 yards, three touchdowns) and tight end Preston Forney — who is transitioning to defense — and his four touchdowns. Two-way player and blue-chip defensive back recruit RJ Mickens (junior) is back, however, and could be in line for a bigger season statistically after producing a whopping nine touchdowns on just 14 catches for 298 yards (21.3 per catch) last year. Wills Meyer returns as a big-play threat for the passing attack after averaging better than 20 yards per catch with three touchdowns as a junior. Senior Patrick Traynor also brings speed to the position alongside Mickens, while seniors Carson White (nine receptions, 141 yards, two touchSOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

downs) and Glenn Mitchell and junior John Manero profile more as possession receivers. Statistically, the Carroll passing attack was lacking in the win over South Grand Prairie. Bowers was efficient with a completion percentage of 55, but managed just 71 yards through the air. Additionally, McDaniel was the only Carroll player to record more than two receptions (4-18), while White had two catches for 16 yards and Mickens had two receptions but managed only five yards. Meyer and Traynor, meanwhile, had receptions for 14 and 15 yards, respectively, but Dodge believes the lack of passing yardage had more to do with the South Grand Prairie defense than Carroll’s performance. “That’s a really good defense over there and a very talented secondary,” Dodge says. “And they play a lot of man in the back. When you have that, you kind of know it’s going to be more a running night and it’s tough to account for both our running back and quarterback. We kind of just took what they gave us.” With Carroll’s running game already clicking on all cylinders and a more-than-capable passing attack adjusting, the Dragons are set to have another high-powered attack this year. FALL '18 • 15


Adding to the Southlake Carroll core of receivers is Carson White in his senior season. Averaging over 15 yards per reception and a total of 141 receiving yards last season, White proves to be another long threat for the Southlake Carroll offense.

With a total of 183 receiving yards last season, Wills Meyer is ready to step into the spotlight and fill the shoes of former wide receiver Cade Bell as a junior this season. At 6’2”, 180 pounds and averaging 17.7 plus yards per reception, Meyer has proven to be a deep threat.

Bowers returns under center after throwing for over 2,500 yards and 30 touchdowns in his junior season. A proven dual threat, Bowers also ran for over 800 yards and eight scores. A 68-percent passer, his keen decision-making and accuracy both in the pocket and on the run will put opposing defenses to the test.

RB Eli Furgal Senior 16 • FALL '18

With just under 2,000 rushing yards and 24 touchdowns last season, TJ McDaniel was an unstoppable force. The future SMU Mustang has worked on his receiving skills to become an even bigger threat out of the backfield. Powerful with speed to spare (4.5 sec. 40-yard dash), TJ will be relied upon heavily throughout the season.

RB TJ McDaniel Senior

At 6’1”, 180 pounds, John Manero has emerged as a go-to receiver. Manero had a breakout performance in the home opener against Colleyville Heritage catching seven balls for a total of 76 yards. With length and speed on the outside, Manero will be a touch matchup for 5-6A defenses.

Replacing one of the top linemen in the state rests on the very broad and athletic shoulders of Andrej Karic. An All-District selection as a sophomore, the 6’5”, 240 pound, Karic has emerged into the pivotal role of protecting the quarterback’s blind side.

AN INSIDE LOOK AT THIS YEAR'S DEFENSE

W

hile Southlake Carroll’s defense returned just five starters from last season, the Dragons took little time demonstrating how formidable of group it will be in 2018 during a season-opening 25-8 victory over South Grand Prairie. The South Grand Prairie Warriors didn’t lack for offense a year ago, but found little success against a Carroll defense that surrendered just 241 total yards — 134 through the air and 107 on the ground. Dominating in the trenches, including recording a pair of sacks, had to be a particularly welcomed site for first-year defensive coordinator Lee Munn — who arrives via Austin Westlake — as the Dragons had just one all-district defensive lineman a year ago in Rice signee Jacob Doddridge. The Dragons — who allowed 23.2 points and 338 yards (176 rushing, 162 passing) per game in 2017 — also said farewell to a pair of all-district middle linebackers and tackling machines in Ryan Thompson (teamhigh 162 tackles) and Matty Werner (second with 128 tackles), but showed no signs of weakness in the middle against the Warriors. “The effort and the way they ran to the football is what stood out most to me,” says Riley Dodge, Carroll head coach. “We got hats to the ball and forced them into turnovers. It’s really tough to pinpoint one guy. I thought our entire front seven had a great night.” The leaders of that front reside on the outside where linebackers Michael Parrish and Graham Faloona are back off All-District campaigns. Parrish’s season saw him notch 93 tackles (team-high 15 for loss) with five sacks and four forced fumbles, while Faloona recorded 80 tackles (seven for loss) with two sacks. Joining the pair at starting linebacker is PresSOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

ton Forney, who is transitioning from offense (tight end) to a full-time defensive spot at middle linebacker, and senior Colton Hunter. Senior Sam Matin and junior Thomas Wrehe also fit into the rotation and will be contributors on special teams. Up front, Carroll has what Dodge described as “a deep and veteran” unit headlined by juniors Quenten Bunten and Dillon Springer and senior Alex Kingston. Juniors Jacob Lattig and Andres Ramirez are also options on the defensive line. Last year, Bunten had 56 tackles and a sack followed by Kingston with 48 tackles. Bunten already equaled his sack total from a year ago against South Grand Prairie while also chipping in three solo tackles, while Springer had seven tackles. Kingston, meanwhile, had five tackles and a game-changing play when he intercepted South Grand Prairie’s Drake Logan and returned it 12 yards for a touchdown to open the season’s scoring. At linebacker, Parrish and Faloona were all over the field. The former had a team-high 10 tackles with one sack and four quarterback pressures while the latter wasn’t far off with nine tackles. Inside, Forney’s debut on the defensive side saw him record six tackles, including one for a loss with Matin making both of his takedowns go for negative yardage. Perhaps the biggest concern for the Carroll defense entering the season came in the secondary where just one starter was due back following the transfer of alldistrict defensive back Jake Fex to Colleyville Heritage. Fortunately, that player is blue-chip recruit and reigning allstate junior RJ Mickens — the No. 1-ranked safety in the country in his class and No. 5 player in Texas overall, according to 247sports.com. At 6’ 1” and 188 pounds, Mickens has his choice of colleges, and has already received offers from the likes of Alabama, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Clemson following a sophomore campaign of 99 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and a touchdown. Mickens got right to his ball-hawking ways against the Warriors, picking off Logan while adding three tackles. But Dodge notes Mickens wasn’t the only secondary member with a big night. FALL '18 • 25


“RJ was our only guy in the back end with experience,” he says, “and we have a lot of different corners we’re using. There are about five or six in our rotation, and I was very proud of the way they played in their first starts under the lights.” Fellow safety and senior Ben Furgal was a varsity member a year ago and had a strong opener with eight tackles. Cornerbacks in the rotation for Munn include seniors Griffin Gumm and Spencer Simon, juniors Brandon Howell, Dylan Thomas and James Miscoll. It was senior Connor Patterson who led the secondary in tackles, however, with eight, while Gumm and Howell had four apiece with the latter also adding a third Carroll interception. As noted, Carroll’s secondary is vastly inexperienced in terms of varsity starts outside of Mickens, and should only improve as the Dragons drive toward the postseason. Factor in a front that has already flashed its potential, and Carroll has the makings of a defense that can carry the team to Arlington in December. 26 • FALL '18

With a total of 80 tackles in his sophomore season, Graham Faloona was selected as a Second Team All-District performer. He enters this season as one of the team’s top returning defenders. At 6’2”, 190 pounds, Faloona wasted little time putting a stamp onto his junior campaign posting nine tackles in the season opener against South Grand Prairie.

Preston Forney is a quick threat in the Southlake Carroll rotation. Even in limited action last season the 6’1”, 205-pounder showed a knack for hawking the ball. He notched seven solo tackles, two of which were for a loss last season. Through the first two games Forney leads the Dragons with 18 total tackles.

At 6’2”, 250 pounds, senior Alex Kingston has the strength, size and experience to lead the Dragon defensive line. With a total of 46 tackles last season, Kingston creates a wall for opposing offenses. Kingston began his senior season with a momentum-changing interception return for a TD against South Grand Prairie.

In his junior season, Quentin Bunten has already been named one of the top defensive linemen in the Fort Worth area for 2018. With 56 tackles and one sack last season, the 6’, 270-pound Bunten is a force to be reckoned with. In the first game against South Grand Prairie, Bunten put up one sack and looks to continue this through the season.

In his sophomore season with the Southlake Carroll Dragons, Joe McFadden has already shown his dependability as both a punter and kicker. With a 25-yard field goal in the season opener, McFadden helps provide Coach Dodge with many options in the kicking game.

DRAGON COACHES BRING A WEALTH OF EXPERIENCE TO THE FIELD


BY JUSTIN THOMAS

W

hile the eyes of the Metroplex are on new head coach Riley Dodge, there is a full force behind him ready to share the load. Dragon fans are already well accustomed to the headlines mentioning two things about Dodge: age and lineage. It’s not everyday that a gridiron powerhouse hires a 29-year-old coach. But Dodge isn’t wasting time on the mentions of his age, nor is he worried about matching his father’s, Todd Dodge, 98-11 win record for the Dragons. His confidence lies in experience, and not just his own. “I ran the numbers at a recent function we were at and I think it came to 19 years in total as a staff of college coaching alone,” Dodge says. “There is a lot of experience here, and a lot of guys that have done it in college or as coordinators. And we have it on both sides of the ball. It’s a pretty neat thing.” One glimpse inside the Carroll coaches’ office reveals the numbers to be concerned with are not that of Dodge’s age, but that of high school coordinating experience, coaching years in the collegiate ranks and state championship rings aboard the staff; a wealth of knowledge and teaching ability many of Dodge’s contemporaries could only dream of having at their disposal. Not only do the members of Carroll’s staff possess a winning pedigree, they bring plenty of coaching familiarity with either Dodge himself, or Carroll, outside of new-hire and cornerbacks coach Brian Sides — who arrives via Magnolia. Safeties coach Robert Drake, special teams and linebackers coach Mike Loveless and defensive line coach Aaron Lineweaver — the son of former legendary Euless Trinity head coach Steve Lineweaver — have all been on Carroll’s staff since Dodge was a player with the former a member of seven state titles with the Dragons. “To have a guy that was on my dad’s staff now on my staff, that’s pretty cool,” Dodge says. Wide receivers coach Cade McCrary was a player at the University of Texas while Dodge was there as a quality control quarterbacks coach and was retained from Carroll’s staff a year ago, as was offensive line coach Ben Gaeth. Defensive tackles coach Carl Anderson served alongside Dodge as a defensive coordinator at Marcus, while running backs coach Scoop Reed was at Marcus just a year ago and has known Dodge for a long time. “I was very excited to bring Scoop on,” Dodge says. “We keep in touch, and I always told him if I got the chance to be a head coach, I wanted to him to come with, so it all worked out perfectly there.” “And having worked with Carl before and being able to bring in a veteran guy that has actually called the defensive plays was huge.” Lee Munn, the man coordinating the Carroll defense, has spent the past six years working with Todd Dodge at Marble Falls and Austin Westlake. “I just love what he did that last four years at Westlake,” Dodge says. “It’s incredible how dynamic you can be and all of the different things you can do in his defense while still keeping things relatively simple and playing fast.”

“Lee has great energy, and he’s a great teacher,” he continues. “I would say that is the one thing that really stands out about him the most.” Familiarity and coaching bloodlines on the staff don’t end there, however. Offensive line coach Chris Smith arrived at Texas A&M as Dodge was departing for Texas and was later a part of five state titles in six years while serving as offensive coordinator at Carthage. “We’ve worked with a lot of the same coaches,” Dodge says. “For me, I was looking for the best offensive line coach in the state of Texas. Chris was an assistant at A&M for three years and did a great job at Carthage. He knows what it takes to win. I was looking for the best on the line and I got him.” And then there’s offensive coordinator Marshall Williams from Fort Worth Brewer. “He’s another guy I’ve know for a long time and we’re from the same coaching tree,” Dodge says. “Offensively, we’ve never worked together, but we’re good friends and talk all of the time. So when I had the opportunity to bring him on, he was the first guy I called. I’m fired up about having him here.” Dodge noted that between his offensive background as a quarterback and coordinator, and the same of Williams and Smith, the chemistry in the coaching room has been outstanding. “It’s really with the entire offensive staff, but for coach Williams, I and coach Smith, a lot of the work is done on Saturday and Sunday,” Dodge says. “That’s when the hard work is done as a staff and both of them have done it. They’ve both been coordinators and I have two veterans there. So there are three of us that have done it and that’s going to help us out.” With ample experience from coaches on both sides of the ball, the Dragons are in good hands. There are a lot of expectations, and while Dodge is aware of that, he is staying grounded and trusting his staff. “I’m glad the players have high standards because I know I do and I know the community does,” Dodge says. “But I think the thing that has made this place special, at least I know when I was here, is that we never got ahead of ourselves. We took on practice and games one at a time. When you have that mindset, things take care of themselves. If you look too far ahead, that’s when you slip up.”

W it p e e k s n o g Dra r e k ic K t a e Competitiv

hen it comes to kickers, Carroll isn’t going to run out any time this season. The Dragons are stacked on special teams with three kickers competing for time on the field. While it’s not rare for a football team to list multiple kickers on a roster, this particular crew is raising some eyebrows. There is a former linebacker and Division 1 prospect. Then there is a sophomore who got his first taste of varsity play during last year’s postseason. And there is a soccer star who holds the school’s record for shutouts. Together, this group could hold the keys that may make or break the season. "Everything right now is still a competition,” senior kicker Neal Koskay says. “We all do what we can to the best of our abilities. If I have an off day, then I know that one of those two or even both of them are right there and good enough to compete. They're eager and hungry and so am I." While the triad fiercely trains, they’re also taking time to encourage each other and look out for the Dragons’ best interests. Here is a closer look at this year’s Dragon kickers: Neal Koskay, Madi Martin and Joe McFadden. 8 2 N E A L K O S K AY Like many Dragons, Koskay has played football from a young age. He honed his skills in Dragon Youth Football as both a kicker and a linebacker. During his sophomore year Koskay faced injuries that forced him to give up his role on defense. “[Kicking] was my first love of football, so that's what I decided to stick with,” he explains. As a senior on varsity, Koskay has been with many of his teammates through thick and thin. The fact that his era as a Dragon is about to come to a close isn’t lost on him. "It's an honor to be a part of this team, especially as a senior, being in the program for four years and being with the teammates this year is really exciting,” he says. “We've been playing since Dragon Youth Football, and now we're all here as seniors and it's kind of surreal to think about, but it's very exciting." Many Dragon fans share his excitement as the year was already full of change before it began. With a new head coach at the helm and plenty of returning talent on offense and defense, the season

85 MADI MARTIN It goes without saying that Martin is in a unique situation for the Carroll Dragons. But being the only girl on the football team – and the first girl on varsity – doesn’t seem to phase her. “I'm just another player on the field,” she says. “I'm not trying to make myself any more than I am – I know my role on the team. I told them, 'Hey, I know I'm a girl, I know it's weird, but I love football so much.’” The varsity goalkeeper and Dragon kicker is fueled by her passion for the sport and has been for quite some time. She played football in middle school, ranging from offense and defense positions to kicker. During her freshman year, she joined the team as a kicker, but stopped playing for the next two years to focus on soccer. Now, she is balancing both. "I got into [kicking] because my neighbor and old family friend was a kicker, so I was always training with him while he worked on his kicks,” Martin says. “Then I was like, 'Hey, this could actually be something I could do.'" Her teammates will attest that it really is something she can do. Both Koskay and McFadden speak highly of her talent. The coaches have her focusing on PATs (point after touchdowns, or extra point) and short yard field goals, she says. SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

Like many other Dragons, Martin has worked under two head coaches. And like her fellow kickers, she only has good things to say about new head coach Riley Dodge. While former coach Hal Wasson gladly took her on the team, Martin was unsure of how Dodge might react to her return to Dragon football. "He's made me feel welcome,” Martin says. “I didn't know how he was going to handle this because he already had a lot going on. He's done a great job and I'm excited for what he has in store for us this year." The rest of the team mirrors their coach’s attitude toward Martin. Most have played football with her before, so it’s nothing new to them. Martin describes the team’s response to her return as nonchalant. “When they heard I was coming back they were like 'Oh, okay,'" she says. “A lot of them are pretty accustomed to it. We are just trying to make me feel like one of the guys.”

85 MADI MARTIN

looks promising. Koskay is well acquainted with one particular player returning to the field to hold kicks... and lead the team. "[Quarterback] Will Bowers has been holding the kicks since he was a sophomore on varsity,” Koskay says. “So he's really experienced and seasoned. In my opinion, he's one of the best high school holders in the country." Competing for plays against Madi Martin and Joe McFadden pushes him, but the three manage to keep the contest congenial. "We all encourage each other and we all compete everyday just to make each other better,” he says. “We all go to the same private kicking coach, so we all are very familiar with each other's techniques, strengths and weakness. We try to help each other out and lift each other up.” As the season progresses, Koskay keeps grinding away, eager to play in college. When it comes to college recruitment, kickers have a much different field to navigate. It’s rare for kickers to be offered scholarship positions straight out of high school. They have to fight tooth and nail to get into the best camps in the country to garner the attention of recruiters, which is exactly what Koskay is doing. Kohl’s Kicking Camp – one of largest and most prestigious in the nation – listed him as a five-star kicker, their highest rating. He attended the Chris Sailer Kicking Top 12 Camp – an invite-only camp for the top kickers in the country – where he was also listed as a five-star recruit. And it is paying off, as Koskay has officially been offered prefered walk-on status from the University of Louisiana Monroe. "I've been talking to some colleges as well as some college coaches,” he says. “I'm still exploring all of my options as far as which school I'm interested in, and I'm open to any possibilities." It’s a terrifying gamble to attend a university you may never play at, but with a leg like Koskay’s, it’s safe to say the odds are in his favor.

Her school schedule is currently quadruple blocked as varsity soccer and football both take two class periods. Upon graduating, she hopes to attend the Air Force Academy and play soccer. Having four years of varsity experience and holding the career shutout record (43) for the Lady Dragons should go a long way in getting her on the team. Until then, she is chasing her passion, two sports at a time. "I'm not trying to be a sideshow, I'm just here because I love football,” she says. FALL '18 • 45

8 4 J O E M C FA D D E N Competing for playing time against two seniors could be daunting for a sophomore on varsity, but McFadden takes it in stride. "It's pretty neck in neck,” he says. “Each of us can kick and punt at a high level. We just leave it up to Coach Loveless every week to decide who gets to play, and it's ultimately based on our performance that week in practice." After the first game this season, McFadden was 1/1 on field goals. He has an ability to come through in the clutch, a skill that was recognized last year when he was only a freshman. He started out on the freshman team, but got pulled up to varsity during the first week of playoffs. He didn’t expect to play, but he got his first opportunity against Waco Midway. Under the lights of Baylor’s McLane Stadium, the freshman got his first varsity play during the 6A quarterfinals. Now as a sophomore, he continues to compete for time on the field. He admits that it can be challenging with two other talented individuals vying for the same thing. "As kickers, I know we're supposed to be the calm people on the team, but we can fight a little bit in practice,” he says. “But after we take the helmets and shoulder pads off, we're all friends again and realize we're all here for a common goal and that's to help the team." While many on the team, like Koskay and Martin, have been playing together since at least middle school, McFadden first joined the Dragons last year. His family moved to Carroll while he was in seventh grade, so Dragon Youth Football was out of the picture. Even so, his kicking leg was getting plenty of practice. “I played soccer a lot, but football didn't really cross my mind until my dad mentioned it,” McFadden says. “Then I started playing kicker and safety my freshman year. I dropped safety because I realized I was a lot better at kicker and had a future in it." And it certainly appears that he has a future in the position. For the class of 2021, McFadden is ranked second in the nation through Chris Sailer Kicking and sixth in the nation by Kohl’s Kicking. During the first game of this season, he had seven punts for 240 yards, in addition to a field goal. His longest kick in practice so far was a 62 yarder and as a freshman, McFadden posted a 48-yard field goal. While getting a D1 scholarship as a kicker is rare, that is his long term goal. For now, however, the sophomore is taking things game by game. "This year, I’m just trying to focus on making field goals,” McFadden says. “That's all it is really. I don't want to make it anything more than that. Once you try to make it something more, you get all this pressure and you get flustered when you go out to kick. It's all about just taking a deep breath and take it one kick at a time."

Carroll Dragons

fter maneuvering through District 5-6A without so much as a loss en route to the district crown in 2016 and finishing third on its way to the fourth round of the playoffs in 2017, Southlake Carroll’s football team finds a new set of bunkmates in 2018. The Dragons remain aligned in 5-6A, but this time alongside Denton Guyer, Keller ISD (Keller, Central, Fossil Ridge and Timber Creek) and Northwest ISD (Eaton and Trophy Club Byron Nelson). Carroll will again have lofty expectations under first-year head coach Riley Dodge as the Dragons return many key pieces from a squad that came within two games of competing for the state championship a year ago. The Dragons are the lone team in the district to appear in AP’s preseason Texas high school football media poll (No. 10) and are one of only three Metroplex teams to be ranked alongside reigning champ Allen (No. 1) and Duncanville (No. 9). Media members believe Guyer to be Carroll’s chief competition in district action as the Wildcats did get a nod in the “others receiving votes” category. Last year, Guyer finished second in District 6-6A to Allen and was the No. 1 seed in the Division II playoffs only to be upended in surprising fashion by Byron Nelson in the first round. While the Wildcats are only slated to return eight starters, including just three on the offensive side of the ball, the sky is the limit for Guyer’s attack behind sophomore signal-caller Eli Stowers, who already boasts multiple Division I offers, and junior running back Kaedric Cobbs, who racked up 1,362 yards and 25 touchdowns after transferring from Melissa following his freshman campaign. Seth Meador returns on the outside for Guyer after pacing the team last season with 22 receptions, 394 yards and two touchdowns, but the Wildcats have multiple starters to replace on the offensive line. Establishing depth and cohesion early there could prove vital to Guyer’s success, in particular with its showdown against Carroll coming in just the second week of the district slate. Guyer isn’t Carroll’s only district opponent coming off a playoff berth, however. In fact, far from it. 52 • FALL '18

Seven of the eight teams in 5-6A were dancing a year ago, including the aforementioned Bobcats of Byron Nelson (6A Division II) and Eaton (5A Division I) advancing to the area round with Keller (6A Division I), Fossil Ridge (6A Division II) and Central (6A Division II) bowing out in the bi-district round of their respective brackets. The Fossil Ridge Panthers may be next in line of 5-6A contenders behind a dynamic pair of returning skill players in receiver Jaylen Hearst (896 receiving yards, seven touchdowns) and running back Colione Evans (871 rushing yards, 24 touchdowns). But Fossil Ridge enters the fall unsure of who will be distributing the ball their way as Austin Stohlman and Scotty Colis are in a competition for the starting quarterback position. Fossil Ridge should be strong defensively as well with eight returning starters, including linebacker Marco Olivas (125 tackles, three sacks) and secondary members DeMarcus Jones (three interceptions) and A.J. McGill (78 tackles), while Rafael Hernandez and Klein Mulongo anchor things in the trenches. The Bobcats should again be in the playoff mix as well after making it to the postseason in consecutive years in a deep and talented 6-6A that Carroll won. The Dragons got the better of Byron Nelson in both 2016 and ’17, taking the first meeting, 4413, before rolling last year to a 50-17 victory. Bobcat coach Travis Pride and his team match V. R. Eaton for tops in the district with seven offensive starters due back, though Byron Nelson is inexperienced at the skill positions. Byron Nelson’s senior running back/cornerback Dylan Bell racked up 545 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in a reserve role and is expected to take on a larger role despite the presence of play-making sophomore tailback Maxwell Modeste. Quarterback Hudson White is also just a sophomore but doesn’t lack for talent with Ty Boone, Calvin Wiggins and Noe Diawaku expected to be his top targets through the air. Byron Nelson also has a candidate for Defensive MVP in linebacker Dante Cardinali (87 tackles, two sacks). As noted, the V. R. Eaton Eagles also brings back plenty of experience (seven offensive, six defensive starters returning) after making the playoffs for the first time in program history in 2017, but now must contend with making the jump from 5A to the state’s largest classification. Carroll’s TJ McDaniel should get a firm challenge from Eaton’s Titus Swen for top running back in the district billing. As a junior, Swen was a second-team all-state selection after posting 2,291 total yards and 27 touchdowns. Swen is also joined by fellow Eagles running back Dawson Pell, who churned out 871 rushing yards and seven touchdowns last season. A speedy defense is spearheaded by linebackers Nick Cerniauskas (108 tackles) and Kendall Robinson (70 tackles) and safety Brandon Johnson (61 tackles). Keller Central can also make a claim as a playoff challenger and is projected to place fifth by some prognostications. The Chargers squeaked into the DRAGONPRIDE

playoffs and settled on an overall record of 6-5 last year with five starters returning on each side of the ball. Central junior D.J. Graham fills a role of returner on each side of the ball after hauling in 556 receiving yards with six touchdowns offensively to go with three interceptions in the secondary. Questions remain under center, however. Senior Jack Hecker helmed the offense a year ago, but is naturally a receiver and could slide back outside if either junior quarterback Gavyn White or junior Sam Hafley emerge as quality passers. Senior running back Williams Vuong, meanwhile, combined to form a strong tandem in the secondary with Graham after recording 119 tackles. Rounding out Carroll’s district foes are Keller and Timber Creek. The Keller Indians suffered a first-round exit last season and haven’t won a playoff game since 2003. Nine combined returners and a shift to a district that features seven playoff squads doesn’t figure to see that streak snapping in 2018. Keller could turn heads, however, if quarterback Sloan Henry (1,829 passing yards, 20 touchdowns,

54 • FALL '18

12 interceptions) continues to develop under center. Damon Smith and Colton Nelson will be weapons for Henry in the passing game, while running back Enoch Ntchobo is also talented. Linebacker Kayden Steen (120 tackles, three sacks) leads a generally inexperienced defensive unit. While Eaton just made its first playoff bid, Timber Creek is looking to rediscover its 2016 form that saw the Falcons in the postseason for the first time. Head coach Kevin Golden’s squad trails only Guyer in returning starting talent. Fortunately, Blake Irving (1,208 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns) returns in the backfield to power an ideally balanced Timber Creek attack that will feature former junior varsity signal-caller Jason Akers. Timber Creek was also hit hard by graduation in the trenches on both sides of the ball and establishing depth and cohesion up front will be critical for any measure of success in 5-6A. One final note when examining Carroll’s new district regards enrollment: Barring playoff berths from both Keller and Timber Creek (projected to finish seven and eight, respectively), the Dragons will be competing in the 6A Division I playoffs this year as they boast the third-largest enrollment in the district behind the Indians and Chargers.

New Dragon Band Uniforms Represent Strength and Unity By Maleesa Smith

As the Dragon Band hits the field this season, fans will instantly notice changes beyond the setlist. For the first time in over eight years, the marching band will don new uniforms. "We wanted it to have a more contemporary look but at the same time hold on to and have reference to the traditions that make us unique,” says Ken Johnson, Dragon Band Director. “There are subtle hints of our past embedded in the uniform." For the past few decades, the band has worn more traditional marching garb. This year, things are taking a dramatic shift. The uniforms feature different hues of green, worked into spiraling swirls on one side of the uniform. On the other side, a bold, metallic isosceles triangle reflects stadium lights. The jacket portion is asymmetrical as well. The contrasting aspects of the uniforms are purposefully different to display the spirit of the band and the school it represents. Aspects of strength, artistry and unity. "We had to start by realizing that it really is the Dragon Band, not a band of Dragons,” says Michael Cesario, designer from Fred J. Miller Inc. “The essence of the design was that it is the multiple that make a dragon. They're not individuals dragons running around, the band is the dragon." Cesario worked directly with Carroll staff to create uniforms that reflect the band. Johnson says he wanted something more contemporary in order to make the band more competitive and open them up to more show styles. Cesario echoes this sentiment. "The band is a recognized band and is on the rise, so we didn't want to limit them on the kind of shows they can do,” he says. All in all, the uniform design aims to interpret the movement and essence of a dragon. The green swirls are textured in an appearance of scales. The reflective triangle could be interpreted as strength and is a homage to the last uniform. While this will not be put to use this year, the uniforms also have features that can be switched out and transformed for new looks. "The point was to offer the band a strong identity, a strong image that when you see it, there is no other band like it,” Cesario says.

CAMI JO DIGIOVANNI ...

cheer

In her fourth year cheering for the Dragons, Cami Jo Digiovanni not only has spirit but a whole lot of Dragon Pride. A Dragon since kindergarten, Cami Jo credits her pride to her experience growing up in Southlake. “It has been such a special experience growing up in a town that is as hard working and driven as Southlake is,” she says. You’ll most likely hear her yelling “GOOOO Dragons!” on the field Friday nights with her fellow squad members, a group of women she has spent a lot of time with. Cami Jo says that not only does she love her teammates, she cherishes their strong relationships. Her favorite Dragon item? Her megaphone, which helps her to show extra spirit on the sidelines. After graduation, Cami Jo hopes to attend a university in Texas and continue her cheerleading career. Catch her on the sidelines each and every Friday night this fall!

Who’s the energetic face you see jumping up and down on the sidelines and cranking out push-ups in the end zone? That’s senior CREW member Naysan Sahba. Known for being excited and getting others hyped up at all times, Naysan shines this season as a leader of the CREW – a group of students with the sole purpose of getting other Dragons pepped up at Carroll sporting events. During his time on the CREW, Naysan has learned that he enjoys being a part of a team where each member supports each other. Naysan says being on the CREW is just one way for him to show his Dragon Pride, and to give back to the school that has given him so much. His pregame ritual? Lots and lots of sweet tea, along with an occasional Advil. “All the yelling at the games can make your head hurt,” he says. “I have to be in peak condition to sustain the hype.” A self-declared math and science nerd, Naysan hopes to pursue an environmental or electrical engineering degree in college, and to put it to use helping others.

Every Friday night you’ll find Molly McKinnon on the Emerald Belle line in the middle of the field. In her senior season as a Belle and a captain, Molly says being a part of the team is a perfect way for her to combine her love for dance and support both the Dragons and the Southlake community. Molly says her Dragon Pride comes from her love for her hometown, and that there is nothing better than seeing a stadium full of green. “I am so blessed to live in a city with a strong history of excellence and community support,” McKinnon said. Want to see Molly off the sidelines? She will be appearing in a new documentary series next month on Netflix called “Dancing Queen” with her dance studio, Beyond Belief Dance Company. The show centers on RuPaul’s Drag Race star and studio owner, Alyssa Edwards. After graduation, Molly hopes to continue her dance career through and after college.

KATE KARAU ...

band

High above the band and drum line towers Kate Karau, senior two-time drum major for the Southlake Carroll Dragon Band. Raised in Southlake, Kate says she has Dragon Pride because of her love for her home. “Throughout the years, I’ve learned that Southlake has a community-wide bond that very few places have,” she says. “The unity we have as Dragons is something that will always make Southlake home to me regardless of where I am.” Kate’s favorite Dragon item is her letter jacket, because it represents all of the time and effort she’s put into the band program. Kate says being a part of the Dragon band has taught her to be a leader and to surround herself with those who are honest and who will support her. She knows it’s better to face a challenge with her fellow Dragons by her side than alone. She says you’ll most likely find her dancing on the sideline during drum cadences, showing her spirit and support for the Dragons in any way she can. After graduation, Kate hopes to continue her education at a university in Texas, and to pursue a degree in advertising.

THE PRESIDENT OF DRAGON YOUTH FOOTBALL SHARES WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE PROGRAM

R

obert Ladd saw the positive impact Dragon Youth Football had on his family and decided to get involved. He has since taken on the role of president and endeavors to keep the league experience as special as it was for him and his family.

Dragon Youth Football is a Southlake-based, nonprofit competitive youth football organization that seeks to develop players both on and off the field. Coaches focus on life lessons such as working hard, overcoming adversity and being a good teammate. Kids gain confidence, not only on the football field but also in the classroom, socially and in other activities. Together, players and volunteers focus on good sportsmanship, integrity, character development and teamwork. THE ENTIRE DRAGON YOUTH FOOTBALL EXPERIENCE… makes the league special. It starts with having close ties with the Dragon Football Program and builds from there. We have great families, alumni and a community that support our program. There are many events that are unique such as a scrimmage at AT&T Stadium, DYF Night at Dragon Stadium and Super Bowls played at Dragon Stadium. DYF IS CURRENTLY COMPRISED OF… 21 football teams (~300 players), 11 cheer teams (~130 cheerleaders) and over 150 volunteers. The overall health of the organization is excellent. We’re growing and there’s a lot of excitement about the program and the upcoming season.

be #OneDragon. He’s invited us to participate in many events over the past few months such as a spring scrimmage and the Community Pep Rally. Dragon Football coaches and players helped work the DYF Combine that allows players to showcase their skills for our draft in early August. This relationship is special and means the world to our kids and families. WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING TO… improve and make the experience for our players and families better. We rely on our tremendous volunteers and there’s always something that needs to be done. If you want to help, we have something for you to do. Also, we’re registered with CISD so that high school students can volunteer with DYF and receive volunteer hours.

WE WORK CLOSELY WITH… organizations such as USA Football that focus on safety first and better coaching. Our coaches are certified in USA Football’s Heads up Program and we consistently look at new programs that adopt a “right age”, “right stage” philosophy for the best interest of our kids. For example, for this season we extended our flag program into second grade, which has been very well received.

GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY… is a big priority. Just this year, we adopted a street with the City of Southlake. We’re introducing a college scholarship program for Carroll High School graduating seniors and we also have a charity program that chooses a particular cause to support each year. All of these are funded by our DYF Family and do not utilize funds from registration or sponsors.

DURING OUR SEASON, YOU WILL SEE… Dragon coaches and players on our sidelines supporting the DYF Teams. On Friday night, we support the Dragon Football Team and on Saturday the Dragon Football Team supports us. Coach Dodge is very passionate about Dragon Youth Football and is developing different ways for us to work together and

VOLUNTEER’S EXPERIENCE LEVEL DOESN’T MATTER… as long as you want to make a positive impact in the lives of kids and serve as a role model. Everyone has something to offer. We’re blessed to have coaches who played football or other sports at the high school, college or the professional level. We also have coaches who are leaders in business or in the community.
