Glen Rose High School senior Dakota Paschall played football on Monday night for the East team in the annual Blue-Grey All-American Bowl at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Paschall’s East all-star team, which lost a 23-20 decision to the West team in overtime, was coached by former Dallas Cowboy George Teague.
Each team had nine wide receivers who got playing time in Monday’s game on a rotating basis. Paschall got in on five series and 11 plays in all.
The high school all-star showcase is one of four Blue-Grey All-American Bowl games, along with one Jan. 6 in Tampa, Florida; Jan. 13 in Jacksonville, Florida; and again at AT&T Stadium, Jan. 22.
The 6-2, 184-pound Paschall was a wide receiver for the GRHS Tigers when he was selected to play in the game. He had been chosen after competing along with 90 other receivers in the Southwest Super Regional Combine in June, also at AT&T Stadium.
Paschall had the fastest time in the shuttle among the receivers at the Arlington Combine. His time of 4.57 seconds in the 40-yard dash ranked No. 1 among Texas receivers at the event, and was second behind a wide receiver from Oklahoma, who was clocked in 4.44.
In 11 games his senior season playing for coach Cliff Watkins’ 9-2 GRHS Tigers, Paschall led the team in receiving yards (926), catches (40) and touchdown receptions (11). He also led the Tigers in yards per reception, with 23.2.
