Varsity football scores victory against Episcopal School of Dallas

David Shutts
The Kinkaid Falcons football team scored a 43-7 victory against ESD.

After a brief walk-through at 10 a.m., the football team knew they were in for a long drive before their 7 p.m. game. 

This past Friday, after a grueling four-hour bus drive, the Kinkaid football team traveled to the Episcopal School of Dallas and won its second Southwest Preparatory Conference game. 

“The trip was long and tiring, but we knew we had to stay locked in for the game ahead,” junior Gus Griggs said.

The team stopped at Woody’s Smokehouse for lunch, one of Coach Larned’s favorite spots. Every time the team goes to Dallas, they say it is almost a guarantee that they will stop at Woody’s.

A couple hours later the team went to Luby’s, another Kinkaid football classic, for the pregame meal. 

Finally, six hours after departure they arrived at ESD’s campus ready to play. The last time the Kinkaid football team played at ESD was in 2021 in a crushing loss, 31-21. 

Both teams have changed and grown a lot from then to now.

“Obviously, the team is a lot different,” junior cornerback Isaac Ly said. “Back then, we had two Division I commits and now we have none, but we have to play with the cards we are dealt.”

The team had spent the week in preparation for the quarterback’s big game. The Episcopal School of Dallas was banking on its passing to win games, so the defensive plan was to stop them from getting deep completions. 

The defense succeeded in this effort, only allowing seven points the entire game. 

The offense was led by senior running back Miles Roeder as he went for 313 total yards. His change to offense after the game against Second Baptist School’s team has helped this offense thrive. 

The offensive line also had elite blocking. The Falcons rushed for 283 yards, winning the game with a score of 43-7.
