Former Cougar QB dominating college ranks

Staff Reports

Xavier Powell, Jameson Johnson, Max Baronoske – the Cougar team that reached the third round of the playoffs in 2011 had talent. And directing it all was quarterback Justin Dvorak.

In his senior year, Dvorak was the team’s leader in passing (2,105 yards, 16 TDs)  and rushing  (635 yards, 6 TDs). His play and his grades were good enough to earn a football scholarship to Colorado’s School of Mines.

Today, he’s winding down his college career in style. As a senior, he’s leading the nation with 48 passing touchdowns and has surpassed 4,000 yards, leading the Mines (9-2) to the Division II playoffs and a share of their conference title.

He’s also an underdog in another competition – a fan vote for Player of the Year. Since Mines is a smaller school, his supporters are hoping the Tomball faithful can help him earn one last accolade before he finishes his college career.
