John Cooper Dragons Football Update: Week 2 Homecoming


9/6 vs Legacy Prep • 53-8 WIN

The Varsity football team continues its winning streak 2-0 with a 53-8 victory over Legacy Prep.

The Dragons offense had 593 yards compared to Legacy Preps 232 yards. The second week in row Dragons had a running clock in the second half.

Coach Erik DeHaven: The team is understanding the standard that we are implementing. We have to play our style of football for four quarters no matter the opponent. The offense line is becoming a real force, allowing us to rush for 300-plus yards.
Next week we have a big test, playing a very solid Bay Area Christian School. This is a team that returns a lot of starters on the offense and made a deep run in TAPPS playoffs last season. They will try to control the clock by rushing four yards at a time, so we must be disciplined in our defensive assignments. Again, I am very proud of our team’s effort this Friday night and it feels great winning your homecoming game.

Players of the Week:

Offensive MVP: Kase Harris • Graded out at 90% on blocking assignments and had 2 pancake blocks

Defensive MVP: Blake Pitts • 8 Total Tackles – 1 sack – 2 Tackles for a loss

Team MVP: Cameron Reed • 10 Total Tackles – 1 sack – 2 Tackles for a loss – 2 Rushing TD’s on offense

Simply put I am a fan of Texas high school football. I attend as many high school football games as I can - 82 games in 2017, 86 games in 2018, 76 games in 2019. I also have some limited computer skills and I use those to provide information to the #txhsfb community. I am always looking for new ways to provide information to the #txhsfb community. If you have ideas and suggestions, tag or DM me on Twitter.
