Dallas Morning News Recap

Wylie East 35, Wylie 28

WYLIE — Quarterback Garrett McCain rolled up 342 total yards and three touchdowns to rally Wylie East to an upset win over cross-town rival Wylie at Wylie ISD Stadium.

McCain and East (2-3, 1-1 in District 13-4A) jumped out to a surprising 21-0 lead three minutes into the second quarter with a 5-yard keeper and a pair of bombs (84 and 70 yards) to sophomore receiver Jared Wyatt.

Wylie (2-3, 1-1), ranked 10th in SportsDays Class 4A area rankings, would rally in the second half behind quarterback Kameron Kelly, receiver Alex Wesley, and linebacker Michael Kloza. Kelly connected with Wesley on a 59-yard post for a touchdown two plays into the second half and Wesley took an end-around for a 13-yard score almost three minutes later. Kelly would put Wylie ahead with a 13-yard touchdown run with 4:55 remaining in the 4th quarter. Kelly’s go-ahead score was setup by Kloza’s blocked punt. Kloza intercepted McCain earlier in the quarter and added a sack, forced fumble, and recovery in the first half. Kelly finished with 193 yards passing, 57 rushing, and three touchdowns.

McCain, who had been shutout the entire second half, responded with a 4-play drive for 63 yards that running back Kevon Mack finished off with a 12-yard run. The drive was highlighted by another long reception by Wyatt, who finished with five catches for 216 yards and two scores. Playing without their kicker, McCain also handled kicking duties (3 PATs) and served as the team’s punt returner. Wylie had one last chance but Wesley was ruled down two yards short on 4th down at the East 45-yard line.

First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Daniel Jones
























The 1982 graduating class of Wylie High School has the most Hall of Honor inductees with six class members being inducted over the years.  Daniel Jones is one of those six, as he was inducted into the Wylie Hall of Honor in 2006.   

A multi-sport athlete, Jones played baseball, football, basketball and ran track all four years of high school.  As a sophomore, junior and senior, he received all district honors in baseball and football.  As a sophomore, he began his varsity career playing tight end and strong safety.  One of his most memorable games was his first touchdown pass as a sophomore, when the Pirates played against Lake Dallas.  His older brother, a senior at the time, was also on the team. 

After graduating, he went on to play football for East Texas State University (now Texas A&M Commerce).  A knee injury ended his athletic career early, yet he remained at East Texas and graduated with his Bachelors in Business Administration.  He is currently the President & CEO of Encore Wire in McKinney, TX. 

He and his family reside in Prosper, TX, where he is very involved in his community.  Mr. Jones is the President of the Prosper ISD School Board and member of the McKinney Chamber of Commerce and Prosper Christian Men’s Fellowship.

He and his wife, Donna, have been married 25 years.  Their three children attended Prosper ISD schools.   Their son, Trevor plays football at Rice University, daughter Katelynn attends Baylor University and daughter Reagan is a senior at Prosper High School.

To fellow footballers, “Don’t celebrate so much when you score a touchdown.  Act like you have been there before!” and to all fellow Pirates, “Read the Bible – get your advice from there.”

Albertsons Market Game of the Week - Pirates vs. Wylie East




After a district win over the Lovejoy Leopards, the Pirates are 2-2 and 1-0 district.  This is Crosstown Showdown week as the Pirates meet their hometown rival, the Wylie East Raiders. 

This is the 4th time these two teams meet.  The Pirates need this win to put them in a good position for district play-offs, so this is an important game in that respect.   

The Raiders are a well-coached team under Coach Joe Lepsis.  Quarterback Garrett McCain, in his fourth year as Raider quarterback, is a very talented player, who can pass and run.   Even with the loss last week, he completed 17 of 27 passes for 256 yards and three touchdowns and a TD run.  Their offensive line are all returners with much experience and their defense, very quick and aggressive. 

Coach Howard said that the team who can make the least mistakes and who can stay in the game, will prevail.  “It will be a battle,” he said.

The Pirates are the visitors for this year’s match-up.  There will be an AHMO Tailgate beginning at 5:00 p.m. on the visitor’s side.  Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m. at Wylie Stadium.

Wylie senior QB Kameron Kelly a triple threat in 30-21 win over Lovejoy

















WYLIE — Kameron Kelly did a little bit of everything for Wylie on Friday night.
The Wylie senior threw for 120 yards, rushed for 178 more and even caught three passes for 65 yards in a 30-21 victory against Lovejoy.
The game was the District 13-4A opener for both teams, and Kelly’s dynamic performance gave Wylie an important leg up on the defending district champs.
Kelly took the reins at quarterback in the second half and finished with four touchdowns — three rushing, one passing. The senior opened the second half with a 75-yard touchdown run in which he broke two downfield tackles.
Wylie (2-2, 1-0) gained 298 of its 445 total yards after Kelly switched from wide receiver to quarterback.
The 65-yard touchdown pass Kelly threw to Alex Wesley in the fourth quarter was the only reason he didn’t lead the team in passing, rushing and receiving. Wesley finished with nine catches for 111 yards, and his touchdown gave Wylie a two-score lead.
Lovejoy (2-2, 0-1) suffered its second consecutive loss without injured quarterback Bowman Sells. His replacement, sophomore Dakota Michaels, received constant pressure from the Wylie defensive front. He finished 10-of-27 for 185 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions.
Nothing hindered Lovejoy more than its 16 penalties for 152 yards, though. Lovejoy only trailed by three points at the start of the fourth quarter, but each of its next two possessions featured third-and-very-long situations following penalties.
Lovejoy’s Aaron Fuller had 49 yards of offense and two touchdowns, and running back Dan Sefcik tallied 80 rushing yards and a score.

First Baptist Wylie Hall of Honor Profile - Kyle Craighead





















As the Executive Director of Wylie ISD Athletics, 1999 Hall of Honor Inductee Kyle Craighead’s job revolves around sports.  Knowing how he came to be a Hall of Honor inductee, you can understand why it comes so naturally to him. 

Mr. Craighead graduated from Wylie High School in 1982.  He was an all-around sportsman playing football, basketball, baseball and running track.  Two of his three years on Varsity Football, the Pirates went to the playoffs.    Of his four years playing baseball, three of those the Pirates were a play-off team.  Craighead received All-district honors for Football as quarterback and Baseball as pitcher/outfielder and was voted Team MVP in Football and Baseball his senior season.  He was also a Varsity Football team captain.  He described his senior year as the most memorable as their varsity football team advanced three deep in the playoffs that season.   Then in the spring, his varsity baseball team made it to the state baseball tournament and advanced to the final four.  They lost a close game in the state semi-final round.  “All of us had grown up together and played sports together.  This is probably my fondest memory, as it was the culmination of our senior year,” said Craighead.   

Being coached under two of Wylie’s finest, Coach Jerry Shaffer (football) and Coach Sam Terry (baseball), Mr. Craighead shared how much was learned from the life lessons that these coaches taught.  “Much like the coaches do now a days, they taught about family values and reinforced those through athletics.  I was able to do something I loved to do, but was still learning things about life.  We didn’t always win, but we always did the best we could.”

After graduating, he walked on at Texas Tech for football as a freshman.  He ended up moving to University of North Texas, where he played baseball for one season.  Craighead graduated with a Bachelor’s in English from North Texas and went on to get his Master’s in Education from Dallas Baptist University. 

Mr. Craighead is in his twenty first year working for the Wylie Independent School District.  He started his career in Wylie at Wylie Middle School (now Harrison Intermediate) in 1993.  In 1996, he moved over to Wylie High School as the assistant Baseball Coach and assistant Football Coach.  From 1997-2004, he was Head Baseball Coach and Head Freshmen Football Coach.   He was then named Assistant Principal at Wylie High School in 2005.  After two years, he became the Principal of Burnett Junior High.  In 2011, Craighead took over as Executive Director of Wylie ISD Athletics, where he continues to serve.    

His wife, Beth, is also a Wylie graduate and Principal at Draper Intermediate.  They have four children – Ryan (Wylie ’08), Logan (Farmersville ’10), Julia (Farmersville ’12) and Keanan (Wylie ’12) and one grandson, Leighn. 

His exhortation to fellow Pirates - “Enjoy the moment, time goes by so quickly and you will be out of school before you know it.  I think sometimes it seems to drag by at practice…when you are looking forward to the games…But most of us that have long since been out of high school, we wish very much that we could put on the pads on Friday night or could take out the glove to play a game.  Enjoy the moment, it does go by quickly!”









Albertsons Market Game of the Week - Pirates vs. Lovejoy














This week the Pirates take on a talented Lovejoy team at Wylie Stadium.  The Leopards are 2-1 with their first loss since October, 2011 to Frisco during week 3.  Their quarterback, Bowman Sells, was injured during week 2 and sat out the Frisco game.   Despite the loss, they still lead at #3 in the DFW area 4A in total offense averaging 500+ yards per game.  Sophomore Dakota Michaels stepped in as QB and has shown he is quite capable.  Other playmakers for Lovejoy include Daniel Sefcik and Hunter Pfaff at running back and Chochy Luce at receiver, giving them a very balanced offense.

Both teams are coming off of a bye week, which gave them the opportunity to heal with both battling injuries.  Returning this week for the Pirates will be Jarell Brown and T’Kevian Rockwell, who were out the last couple of games with injuries.  This will definitely be an added strength to the defense and the Pirate’s running game. 

Looking at it for the Pirates, Coach Howard said, “Our defense needs to get the right fits and reads and adjust to the schemes they come up with.  Lovejoy is well coached and their kids adjust pretty quick.”  Offensively the Pirates will need to take care of the ball and move it.  “I think we have a chance to be very effective on our offense against their defense.  One of our strengths going in is that we have the ability to move the ball against them.”  

Pre-season is now over and the real season begins.  “Both teams will have a lot of energy.  We have to match their energy and play good solid football for 48 minutes,” said Howard.  Kick-off is at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
