Your Dallas Skyline update...

As most of you know the Gophers are heavily recruiting 4 high school seniors from Dallas Skyline High School.

Keanon Cooper - 3-star - S
Spencer Reeves (pictured right) - 3-star - OLB
Troy Stoudermire - 2-star - ATH
DaJone McKnight - 2-star - S

Gopher Nation is very excited about the prospect of these prospects coming to Minnesota next year. Cooper and Reeves would likely play immediately and McKnight/Stoudermire would add depth and athleticism to the team as well.

I have been paying close attention to the Skyline Raiders this season and here are the results of Friday's game...

Dallas Skyline - 49
W.T. White - 0

  • Allowed 69 total yards (8 rushing, 61 passing)
  • Troy Stoudermire (pictured Right) had a monster game. He now has 9 TDs on the season and nearly 500 yards rushing. He is looking more and more like an impact player.
    • 110 yds rushing
    • 29 yds receiving
    • 24 yds passing
    • 3 touchdowns
The Skyline defense has been dominant as of late...
  • Has not allowed a TD in 14 quarters
  • Averaged 105 yards allowed in last 5 games
  • Averaged 3.4 turnovers forced in last 5 games
The Raiders are 7-1 with 2 games remaining.
  • Carter at 4-4
  • Bryan Adams at 1-7
Assuming they win these games Skyline should make the Texas 5A playoffs. I appreciated that Brewster and staff are working hard to not only bring in talented players but players from winning programs. Good luck to the Skyline 4 and we look forward to seeing you in Maroon and Gold next year!
