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.
