Shadow Creek blanks Magnolia 49-0


SHADOW CREEK — When a school loses an All-State quarterback that leads the team to the state championship game, it seems that may one of the top concerns for the head coach the next year.

Fast forward to Shadow Creek having to replace Jamarian George for the 2019 season. Insert junior quarterback Kyron Drones who has taken control of the Sharks offense and is turning heads with his play after two high school starts.

Drones has not only accepted the challenge, but it appears that the Sharks offense is even more lethal with Drones at the control.

Shadow Creek has only played 18 varsity games counting 2018. Their record is 17-1 with their only loss in their young school history is in a state title game.

The Sharks continued where they left off before the state title contest by winning their first two games for 2019 and it looks like they are a stronger team this year than they were last year -- which is a scary thought for the schools in their path.

Shadow Creek opened the season with a 64-14 thrashing of the Summer Creek Bulldogs and then continued that same intensity with a 49-0 pasting of the Magnolia Bulldogs last week.

Drones had what most would describe as a career game, but the more you watch him, the more you realize that this is his norm on the gridiron -- and he is only a junior.

Against Magnolia, Drones threw four touchdown passes and scored two on the ground.

He fired touchdown strikes covering 2-yards to Seth Jones; 80-yards to Carlton Guldry; 25-yards to Randy Masters; and 30-yards to Kelvon Brown -- all in the first half.

Drones scored two touchdowns on runs of 1 and 31-yards.

The only other score for the Sharks came on a 15-yard run by Jayveon Bell who scored the second touchdown of the game in the first quarter.

The field general finished the game hitting 14-of-21 passing for 279 yards and 4 TDs and seven carries for 98 yards and two more scores giving him 377 total yards of offense.

Magnolia finished with 110 yards of total offense including 41 yards passing.

The Sharks will host 6A Alief Elsik on Friday, September 13 at Freedom Field at 7:00 p.m. in which they are heavy favorites to continue their winning ways.
