Southlake Carroll Dragons 2011 Texas State Football Champions

I must take a detour from my usual discussion of corporate and securities law topics to congratulate the Southlake Carroll High School football team.  The Dragons just finished off an undefeated season with a record-tying 8th Texas state football championship.  The Dragons showed tremendous heart and determination in coming from behind to win five of their six playoff games.  Thier playoff run included the "Miracle on Mockingbird," in which Carroll scored two touchdowns and recovered an onside kick in the final two minutes to erase a 10-point lead by Dallas Skyline High School.  That state semi-final game also featured a wild fox running out on to the field on the same play the go-ahead touchdown was scored.  What an amazing run for this team which inspired so many of us!  

I am pleased to report that this blog recorded its 10,000th pageview this week.  I look forward to sharing much more with you in 2012.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
