Last year the question was "Who will step in as quarterback for the Dragons?" as fans and media alike wondered what the future had in store for Southlake Carroll football with the early exit of Quinn Ewers. This year the question was "Where will Kaden Anderson commit to?" That question was answered on Monday as Kaden Anderson took to social media to announce his commitment to play college football for the University of Wyoming. VYPE DFW's Shana Willeford reached out to Anderson following his commitment for an exclusive interview regarding his decision to commit to the Cowboys' program.
Last season, Anderson stepped into the starting role with ease- helping lead the Dragons to an undefeated regular season. Anderson went on to lead the Dragons deeper into playoffs before falling to eventual state runner-up Duncanville. During the season, Anderson threw for over 3,000 yards tallying 34 touchdowns. Anderson was named to the 4-6A First Team All-District.

VYPE: How long have you been playing football? What got you started?Anderson: I've had a football on my hand for as long as I can remember.
VYPE: Who is your favorite pro athlete and why?Anderson: Aaron Rodgers because he can extend the play when everything breaks down and he's fun to watch.
VYPE: What's your go-to pregame meal? Routine?Anderson: I usually just eat whatever the coaches get for us before games.
VYPE: What has been your favorite memory, so far, with Southlake Carroll?Anderson: Beating Lewisville 52-0. That game was really chippy and fun.
VYPE: What are your goals for this season?Anderson: Go 1-0 every week. Take it one week at a time and enjoy my last high school season!
VYPE: If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive) who would it be? What would you hope to talk about?Anderson: Tom Brady- how he's, like, 40 years old and still getting better!

Last season there was a lot of speculation around Southlake Carroll and whether or not they could live up to being as amazing as always- especially without Quinn Ewers. Without hesitation, though, Kaden Anderson stepped into the role of quarterback and ran with it. The Dragons posted an undefeated district record (6-0) to finish at the top of their district before heading into playoffs. With an explosive offense and one of the strongest defenses in the metroplex, the Dragons held their opponents to a combined 210 points all season. The only game they lost? A 35-9 heartbreaker deep in playoffs to the eventual state runner-ups, Duncanville.
Kaden Anderson is back and ready to have an epic season. The team has been able to adjust around their new star and and put the naysayers out of the backs of their heads. Also returning to the team is star running back Owen Allen who led the Dragons in yards per game as well as touchdowns last season. Cade Parks will also be back on defense for the Dragons.
Usual toughness. The Dragons have all of the ingredients that it takes to dominate through the preseason as well as district play. We should see Southlake Carroll back in the playoffs. With the experience of Anderson backed up by a strong defense, fans just might see their Dragons bring home a state title this season!
