WFAA Questions Eligibility of Southlake Carroll's Daxx Garman

It wouldn’t be Texas high school football if there wasn’t a bit of preseason controversy brewing.

↵

Southlake Carroll, considered by most to be one of the top high school football programs in the country, is coming under fire after WFAA, ABC’s Dallas/Fort Worth affiliate, broke a story questioning the eligibility of quarterback Daxx Garman.

↵

While the Oklahoma high school transfer, and University of Arizona commit, currently resides in Southlake, he still has a connection to a home in Oklahoma.

↵

Given the UIL’s strict residency requirements, there’s a chance Garman could be ruled ineligible for the first game of the season.

↵

A district executive committee will make a ruling on Garman’s eligibility on Friday morning, just hours before Carroll is set to face Copperas Cove.

↵

This isn’t the first time Garman has been questioned about his residency.

↵

His high school in Oklahoma had to forfeit games last year after he was ruled ineligible for transferring without a hardship waiver.
