Shadow Creek’s star senior quarterback Kyron Drones was held out of Friday’s game against Bridgeland as a precautionary measure, head coach Brad Butler said.
The Baylor commitment suffered an injury in last week’s season opener against North Shore. Drones helped the team to a Class 5A Division I state championship with a 16-0 record in 2019.
“We’re not going to rush him,” Butler said. “He’s definitely going to make it back (this season). We just want to make sure we’re smart about the way we do it.”
Shadow Creek sophomore quarterback Duke Butler completed 15 of 31 passes for 195 yards and three touchdowns in his varsity debut – a 27-21 win for Bridgeland that sends Shadow Creek to 0-2. It is the Sharks’ debut season in Class 6A.
Butler impressed early Friday, his second pass of the night finding senior receiver Greg Hancock for an 88-yard touchdown. Shadow Creek did not turn the ball over Friday, but had multiple drive-killing penalties, including one nullifying a punt return touchdown.
“We’re making it very, very hard on ourselves,” Butler said. “We just need to clean things up if we want to be a good football team.”
