The Dragons are coming off of a big Week 1 win over Highland Park in which they proved that Quinn Ewers wasn't the key player on their team. Southlake has been bringing up great athletes for years and the first couple of weeks will give them a chance to showcase their talent. After a 45-21 win over the Scots with exceptional plays from new starting quarterback Kaden Anderson, the Dragons can be expected to put on an all-out show against Rockwall-Heath.
The Hawks enter Week 2 after a close, physical matchup with Keller Timber Creek in which Rockwall-Heath won 56-49. Quarterback Josh Hoover will step into the pocket ready to roll against Southlake Carroll on Thursday night, but it's Heath's defense that's going to have to step up to the challenge of slowing the Dragons' offensive game.
The two teams met in 2020 where Southlake Carroll defeated Rockwall-Heath 72-57. Hoover threw for nearly 400-yards and accounted for four touchdowns last season. Anderson has yet to face a strong Rockwall-Heath defense, but with a seasoned offense, he just may look like a veteran quarterback.
