McMillan dazzles in debut

Filling the shoes of former Cedar Hill quarterback and Oregon freshman Damion Hobbs is 2015 dual-threat Justin McMillan, who completed 10 of 16 passes for 278 yards and two touchdowns last week in leading his young Longhorns over Texas quarterback commit Jerrod Heard and defending Texas 4A-I state champion Denton Guyer, 38-28.

McMillan's longtime friend and 2015 four-star target DaMarkus Lodge reeled in more than half of those yards, 147 to be exact, on just six catches.

It's worth noting six catches were what Lodge had all last season. It was Lodge's first career touchdown Thursday that boosted Cedar Hill 17-0 early in the second quarter.

He and McMillan will be a fun tandem to watch this season. The two credit the daily play of their secondary, led by Oklahoma commit Marcus Green and 2015 cornerback Darrell Miller, in helping prepare them for opponents like Guyer and this week's defending 5A-I state champion Allen.

Lodge already holds offers from Texas, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Baylor, Clemson and UCLA, among others. McMillan still awaits that first offer but remains in close communication with Texas, Baylor and TCU.

He takes the reigns again this Friday in a 7:30 p.m. kickoff at Allen Eagle Stadium.
