Protect the Tradition!

I'm proud to announce that the
Southlake Carroll Dragons

{my high school football team}
are headed BACK to the
State Championship!

You might think it's so lame to be this excited about high school football, but allow me to clarify a few things for you: 
  1. We're in Texas. In Texas, High School Football is a BIG deal. 
  2. Southlake Carroll won three back-to-back state titles in 2004, 2005, and 2006, and were considered the "National Champions" of High School football. 
  3. In total, Southlake Carroll has won 7 state titles, which is a tie for the most state titles between Abilene, Brownwood, Celina, and Plano. If the Dragons win state this year, they will have the most state title wins in Texas High School Football. 
I am going to do everything in my power {aka: beg my boss to let me leave work a little early} to be able to cheer on my Dragons as they kick off at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington against Fort Bend Hightower on Saturday, December 17 at 4:04pm. 

We have a saying in Southlake when it comes to Dragon Football--- PROTECT THE TRADITION. The tradition of excellence, success, and WINNING. I hope the Dragons play their hearts out this weekend to bring the title back where it belongs-- Southlake, Texas! 

Here is this year's Playoff Intro Video that a current Carroll Senior made for the football team... {I think it's kind of amazing that my high school's intro video is better than that of some universities! Just sayin'!}

...And we cannot forget about the Belles of the ball: The Southlake Carroll Emerald Belles Dance Team! I was an Emerald Belle in High School, and if I am able to attend the state game I will be SO eager to see what kind of amazing performance the Belles WOW the crowd with this time! Here is a video from 2007, which is long after I graduated but the performances look exactly the same. {Still as impressive as ever-- gotta love those jump splits!

Here is a picture of me from my days as an Emerald Belle-- just for kicks! 
{I'm so punny.}

In conclusion--- Goooooooooooo Dragons!!! :)
