  • Mike Says: The Dragons had an amazing year last year as they never gave up. The highlight was a miracle comeback against Dallas Skyline in the Semifinals which was one of our Games Of The Year. Overall they trailed in the second half in four of their 6 playoff games. This season Quarterback Kenny Hill is the offensive leader throwing for over 3,000 yards and rushing for almost 1,400. The defense loses a lot to graduation but as always the Dragons will be strong on that side of the ball also. They will continue their winning tradition and go 9-1 or 10-0 in the regular season. Their opening game vs. Allen in Allen's new stadium will be a classic. They will be a Division I team in the playoffs and a threat to win it all.
