After a subpar start to begin the 2019 season the Round Rock Dragons have steamrolled their district rivals losing just once to Stoney Point. In a season where mediocrity began to set the tone for the Dragons, they buckled down and prepared to take over the district. Coach John Carter has done a fantastic job adjusting this season and playoffs are now a thought for this team.
The change in mindset has allowed Round Rock to focus and close out wins and even dominate in some instances. A complete 180 from a mediocre group of kids to a team that plays together to make sure they close games and leave each field with a win. The constant grind in district is precious and with just a couple of games left in the season they cannot allow themselves to get comfortable but use this momentum to evolve to another level come playoff time.
Round Rock currently has a three game lead in district over Stoney Point and should take home the district title once all is said and done. A district title will give them the confidence to begin the playoffs on the right foot therefore presenting them the opportunity to go deep in the playoffs. They know what mediocrity is but they also have a taste of what winning can feel like as well in the tough 6A competition.
April is the last month of the regular season; Round Rock has made a name for themselves in the Central Texas high school area. They have earned every local high school’s respect from digging themselves out of a hole to claiming their spot in the playoffs. Anything is possible for this team based in Williamson County.
Aside from the fact there are other elite juggernaut teams in the Central Texas area, Round Rock for now is currently knocking on the door and will eventually bust through in the playoffs to make themselves heard.
