A former Carroll Dragon football hero returned to his home field Wednesday morning. Ex-Dragon quarterback and current New York Jet Greg McElroy made a guest appearance at the Dragon Youth Football Camp at Dragon Stadium.
McElroy spoke to the campers at the end of Wednesday’s session and told them he played center in sixth grade before eventually becoming an all-state player. McElroy stayed after camp was dismissed and signed autographs, posed for pictures and even threw a few passes to Dragon campers.
McElroy led the Dragons to the 5A Division II state championship in 2005 and threw for 56 touchdowns and 4,636 yards. He also won a National Championship at Alabama and was a seventh-round draft pick of the Jets. During the lockout, McElroy is residing and working out in Southlake.
