    This could be a good omen. They upset a big time local power today.

    Watching your grandson advance to the State Finals from your box at the 50 yd line is pretty cool

    I don't know how Ryan lost. They had monsters on both sides of the trenches.

    "My dad gives me advice before every game," the Highland Park junior said. "I talked to my grandfather. He's just like any other grandfather."

    Well, except him being a billionaire, lol.

    Haha yeah. Lot of oil money from the Barnet shale too. Had a few buddies and dated a few girls from there in college. All drove $30k+ vehicles, one drove a brand new Range Rover, couldn't fathom the fact I was paying for college myself and my parents didn't just write a check for tuition.

    A little out of touch, they are.

    Awesome story.

    BTW, we had 2 local teams make the state finals in their divisions. Refugio and Calallen.

    Calallen would probably have several state titles or at least state championship appearances if it was for a school called La Marque.

    For Jones, Dooley families, football season has been twice the fun

    Todd ArcherESPN Staff Writer

    FRISCO, Texas -- This has been a fall to remember for Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones and wide receivers coach Derek Dooley.

    The Cowboys are 11-1, have clinched a playoff spot and look to have a solid chance of making it to the franchise's first Super Bowl since 1995, but for Jones and Dooley there has been something more special about this football season.

    Their sons, John Stephen Jones and J.T. Dooley, have helped Highland Park to the Class 5A state semifinals, where they will take on Denton Ryan on Saturday at their father’s home away from home on game days, AT&T Stadium.

    John Stephen is a junior quarterback with 28 touchdown passes and seven more on the ground. J.T. is a senior wide receiver whose season was delayed because of a torn labrum that will require surgery once the season ends.

    That will happen when you have the best coaches and training that money can buy.

    I thought the same, but I didn't realize Stephen was so talented.

    Stephen was an all-state QB in HS. Dad and Grandpa both played D-I, so the kid's got some pretty good genetics.
