As someone who began his football play by play career with Dripping Springs Football (then, KDRP.org) in 2007, the Tigers have come a long way. Fast forward 15 years, ‘Drip’ is one of the most exciting athletic brands in Central Texas across all Varsity sports. Now the big boy move up to 6A will have some questioning if the Tigers can hang. The unquestioned hottest recruiting story out of Central Texas this Summer is the rapid rise of Baylor commit QB Austin Novosad ('23). With offers pouring in from the likes of Notre Dame, Stanford, Texas A&M and others - he has a big decision to make.

FINAL THOUGHTS: what are your predictions for the 2022 Tiger Football team? After last year seeming unexplainable loss in Bi-District playoffs after going a perfect 10-0 up to that point…the Tigers can answer a ton of questions this year. But what is their ceiling? If its anything like the rocket rise of QB Austin Novosad, the Tigers could take it ‘to the moon’.
