The Dragon Football season opener against Highland Park on Thursday, August 26, at 7 AT&T Stadium will be aired live on ESPNU as part of the GEICO ESPN High School Football Kickoff, ESPN announced Wednesday.

The GEICO ESPN High School Football Kickoff returns for its 12th year Thursday, August 26 through Sunday, August 29. The seven game slate features 37 players ranked in the ESPN 300 and ESPN Junior 300. Of the athletes participating, 12 have already committed to top Division I college football programs including Clemson, Florida State, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State, Penn State, Texas A&M, TCU and UCLA.

“We are so honored and excited to be a part of the ESPN High School Football Kickoff weekend,” said Steve Keasler, Carroll ISD Director of Athletics. “This is an incredible opportunity for our student athletes to get to compete on a national stage, and we are glad to be sharing that spotlight with our neighbors from Highland Park.”

The Dragons have eight previous state titles and will look to get over the hump again after a runner-up finish in the 6A Division I finals last season. Highland Park has the most all-time wins in the state of Texas. The Scots have won six state titles, including three straight from 2016-2018.
