It wouldn’t be Texas high school football if there wasn’t a bit of preseason controversy brewing.â†µ
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.â†µ
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.â†µ
Given the UIL’s strict residency requirements, there’s a chance Garman could be ruled ineligible for the first game of the season.â†µ
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.â†µ
This isn’t the first time Garman has been questioned about his residency.â†µ
His high school in Oklahoma had to forfeit games last year after he was ruled ineligible for transferring without a hardship waiver.
