Bishop Dunne Falcons Football Team District Champions, play in State Quarter Finals Friday

With a 9 – 1 record, the Falcon football team enjoyed a bye last week, and are set to play Midland Christian Friday night, November 21st at 7:30 p.m. at Earl Hayes Stadium on the Bishop Dunne campus.

The Bishop Dunne Falcons had a successful season last year, beating both cross-town rivals Bishop Lynch for the first time since 1990 and Fort Worth Nolan. They went to the district playoffs and made it through the first round before losing in the second.

The team is 9 – 1 this year and has racked up some impressive points, including a 51-0 opener against Dallas Christian and a 40-7 win against Madison, and a 64-0 shutout of Roosevelt. The team was 20–2 against Nolan until a blocked extra point and a blocked punt in the final minutes of the fourth quarter resulted in a 20–18 win. The team was declared District Champion in Week Nine, and was undefeated for nine of its 10 weeks.

Head Coach Michael Johnson has been named “Coach of the Year” in his district. He credits his team and his fellow coaches, Robert Brodner, Zach Coleman, Myron Hawthorne, Rodney Hopkins, Jon Johnson, Walter Johnson, Ryan Moats, Chad Morris, and Delone Williams, for a winning football season and being named District Champion.
