Southlake Carroll Vs Euless Trinity - Flashback

Southlake Carroll was coming to the end of a dynastic run that ranks as arguably the best ever as they went 79-1 from 2002 to 2006. Trinity, coming off of its first ever state championship in 2005 came in as a slight underdog and hungry to earn bragging rights over their high-profile neighbors. Though the crowd was announced at just over 46 thousand fans, a look at the tape reveals far more than that. Somehow the game managed to live up to the incredible hype that featured more than 30 players from the 2 teams who would go on to play football at the collegiate level. With just under 3 minutes left in the game and Trinity clinging to a 21-16 lead, Head Coach Steve Lineweaver rolled the dice for the first time all day, calling for a fake punt on 4th and 5 at his own 38 yard line. It came up short and the Dragons were able to capitalize as Riley Dodge caps the ensuing drive from 2 yards out to lift the Dragons to a thrilling come from behind win, 22-21. They would go on from there to win their 4th state championship in 5 years. Head Coach Todd Dodge, now at Austin Westlake remembers a heart to heart conversation with the legendary Steve Lineweaver later that night.
