In 2017, Cy Fair High School shocked the Texas football world and unexpectedly won a state title. This year, with a 10-0 overall record, Bridgeland High School appears to be cast as Cinderella after upsetting undefeated Cy Fair by a score of 41-29 to end the regular season.
Despite Cy Fair’s defense only giving up a touchdown a game on average, Bridgeland senior wide receiver Dylan Goffney, a Southern Methodist University commit, finished the game with nine receptions for 181 yards and two touchdowns. The last TD was a game- clinching score that put Bridgeland up 34-29 with 4:34 left in a back-and-forth second half.
The Defender spoke with stand-out playmaker Goffney to discuss his style of play, keys to success against Cy Fair and his blueprint for success with the playoffs looming.
Style of play
“I am a very physical receiver and good with yards after catch.”
Defeating Cy Fair
“It really came down to overcoming the obstacles of the weather and rain. We started off a little slow, but the team came back and pulled together and won.”
“We just have to stay focused, keep practicing hard and keep playing hard.”
