Donovan Green is signed with Texas A&M
As the 2021-22 school year wraps up. VYPE takes a look back at the year that was.
In this installment of Playmakers, powered by UTMB Health, where we will head down south and recognize of Galveston and Brazoria County's best athletes of the fall.
The Clear Creek Wildcats reached the Regional Quarters of the UIL volleyball postseason led by District 24-6A co-MVP Reaghan Thompson. She also starred in soccer during her high school career. Thompson will play her college ball at Northwestern State after leaving a tremendous legacy at Creek.
One of the biggest surprises last fall was the emergence of Izeal Jones of Pearland. Jones did it all for the Oilers, as the team’s top receiver and talented defensive back. He will be playing his college ball at the University of Texas-Permian Basin. He also ran track over the years for the Oilers.
One of the best dual-sport athletes in south Houston is Noah Thomas. At 6-foot-5, Thomas could out-leap everyone on the football field and was named a District 24-6A first teamer. He was also his team’s leading scorer on the basketball court. He will play his college ball at Texas A&M on the football field, where he can stretch the field of coach Jimbo Fisher.
The Dawson volleyball team reached the Regional Semis, won District 23-6A and went 41-5 on the season. What a year. The MVP of the District was Kamryn Scroggins, who is the Eagles’ all-time leader in assists and aces. She signed with the University of New Orleans. He tallied over 1,000 assists this season and was named to the All-State team.
Talk about legacies. Donovan Green was a dominant force for the Gators as a hybrid tight-end/receiver. Green was named the District 24-6A MVP and takes his game to Texas A&M. He also played in the post for the basketball team during his tenure at Dickinson.

What is one of the keys to a successful soccer team? Having a solid goalie back in net. Addison Engle provides that for Pearland Dawson. The junior goalkeeper helped Dawson to a 17-2-3 overall record and second place finish in district play. For her season, Engle was a part of 14 shutouts and started all 22 games for the Eagles. She averaged just 0.81 goals per match and clocked 1,380 minutes. Engle will be a key to the Eagles' success come the playoffs.

Tyriq Brunn may be a name to remember this track season. The Shadow Creek senior is off to a blazing start this season. After a personal best of 10.56 in the 100-meter dash back in February at the William D Sirmon Relay, Brunn with that time still holds the best mark in the State of Texas in mid-March. Brunn has also fared well in the 200-meter dash winning the Stafford Spartan Relays on March 4 with a time of 21.87 seconds.
Last season, Brunn reached the Region III-6A Meet for the 200-meter dash and finished 9th overall. He had a solid AAU season this summer in both the 200 and 100-meter dashes.
