This dragon ornament belongs to my youngest son, Chris. He is a Round Rock Dragon football player. He is on the JV, but he has been practicing with the varsity as a member of their 'scout team' since they have advanced to the state playoffs. Round Rock barely made the playoffs. It was down to the final game of the season, and they clinched the fourth place in their division, and the last spot in the playoffs. Amazingly enough, they defeated A&M Consolidated in the first round. A&M Con was ranked 8th in the state. The next week, they had to face powerhouse Lufkin. A team that was nationally ranked. Once again, the dark horse Dragon team stunned the Texas high school football hierarchy and soundly defeated Lufkin.
Today, December 2, the Dragons face their third playoff opponent, Allen, at Waco. Will the story continue, or will it end? I sure hope they go on..... but it's been a helluva ride so far. What an amazing team.
UPDATE: The Dragons lost to Allen 42-35. Helluva game. Congrats Allen and Amazing playoff run for the Dragons! Ya'll should be proud. I know that I am.
