Legendary Texas girls basketball coach resigns amid recruiting investigation

One of the most decorated girls basketball coaches in Texas state history has resigned just as her most recent accomplishments are suddenly being thrown into question.
As reported by Dallas-Fort Worth NBC affiliate KXAS, longtime Duncanville (Texas) High School girls basketball coach Cathy Self-Morgan, the winner of an astounding eight state championships, resigned Wednesday, before the findings from an internal investigation into Self-Morgan and alleged recruiting practices were made public.
According to the Dallas Morning News, the University Interscholastic League (which governs high school sports in Texas) had already mandated an investigation into allegations that Self-Morgan wrongfully recruited other area athletes to Duncanville. While the findings from that internal investigation have not been made public, it’s widely assumed that the investigation found significant evidence that Self-Morgan responsible for recruiting violations.
That, in turn, may have been what truly pushed Self-Morgan over the line. In a closing statement to the Duncanville fans, the longtime coach said it was time for a change:
“I have been in Duncanville for 19 years, and some of those have been the highlight of my coaching career,” Self-Morgan said in a statement to the media. “I have loved my Pantherettes and our amazing fans, but after 42 years of coaching it’s time for me to step away. That’s why on February 4, I submitted my letter of retirement. I will always cherish the memories I have from this district and with my Pantherettes.”
While it is unknown what sparked the investigation, the acrimonious departure of superstar post player Hannah Gusters — who transferred to Irving MacArthur in mid-December — may have played a factor. Here’s more on that from the Morning News:
Gusters’ mother, Sheridane, said she has copies of text messages between Self-Morgan and a local trainer/AAU coach that her attorney sent to the District 6-6A executive committee and that were then sent by the DEC to the UIL for her daughter’s eligibility hearings.
If true, that might be the closest thing to a smoking gun in the case against Self-Morgan at Duncanville. While school officials have insisted that Self-Morgan planned to retire, the timing of her departure with the ongoing investigation remains fishy, at best.

North Shore couldn't capture a national title, but their run to No. 2 may be even more impressive

Oh so close, but no national title.
North Shore High School (Galena Park, Texas) came extremely close to earning the first public school Super 25 national title in more than half a decade. The Mustangs capped a fairytale 16-0 season with a Hail Mary to win the state title with no time remaining in a thrilling see-saw encounter with new No. 10 Duncanville. The two teams entered the game ranked No. 5 and No. 6, with the North Shore victory vaulting the Mustangs near the national title.
Rankings: Super 25 Football Final Rankings
North Shore’s win capped two very impressive weeks of games played in NFL stadia. First, the Mustangs ran completely roughshod over a very talented Austin Lake Travis team which had been ranked in the Super 25 throughout the first half of the season and had just one loss before their semifinal ouster. Then came the victory against a Duncanville squad that had decisively eliminated Super 25 No. 1 Allen, ending a 30-game winning streak in the process.

So what made the difference between the teams? It was all about the overall strength of schedule. North Shore finished with four very impressive victories — the wins against Lake Travis and Duncanville and not one, but two wins against traditional Texas super power Katy, one of which came in the playoffs.
That was impressive, but it couldn’t quite keep up with Mater Dei’s resume. The defending champions beat traditional national contender Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) 42-0. They edged past fellow top-five program IMG Academy, 28-24. They routed California contender Servite, 35-0, blew out an Orange Lutheran squad led by South Carolina QB commit Ryan Hilinksi, and then went on a remarkable playoff run that included wins against Mission Viejo, Corona Centennial, then No. 1 St. John Bosco and then No. 6 De La Salle.
There were clear drawbacks, yes; the 41-18 blowout loss to St. John Bosco in the regular season was a significant black eye, and the forfeited season-opening victory against Bishop Amat counts for something (even if not much). But balancing the good with the bad, with no fewer than six eye-popping victories, Mater Dei was virtually impossible to top.

That shouldn’t discount what North Shore accomplished, particularly given their remarkably young core. The Mustangs are led by the nation’s top junior running back, five-star prospect Zachary Evans, and a sophomore quarterback Dematrius Davis who already holds scholarship offers from the likes of Baylor and Memphis. There’s more then enough sophomore and junior talent for North Shore to sustain its excellence, though the gauntlet of Texas’ Class 6A may be even tougher next year.
That’s what makes this year’s run all the more remarkable and impressive. It can’t be overstated how impressive those two wins against Katy are. The Tigers were 11-0 outside of their matchups with North Shore, allowing just 109 points in 11 games; North Shore scored 74 points against the Tigers in their two games alone.
To put those wins in perspective, consider this: Katy, which plays in one of the nation’s newest, most lavish high school facilities, lost just nine games in the prior eight seasons. If they have ever lost the same team twice in one season, we couldn’t find proof of it.
Until North Shore.
Will the Mustangs be able to duplicate what they accomplished this year? It’s anyone’s guess. And it certainly doesn’t matter when it comes to what they accomplished this season. Though it didn’t net a national title, 2018 should absolutely go down in history as one of the most remarkable campaigns in North Shore, Houston-area and even Texas history.

VIDEO: No. 6 North Shore tops No. 5 Duncanville for state title with insane 45-yard Hail Mary on final play

The two teams were so well matched that the state title in Texas’ largest division literally came down to the final play. On this occasion, No. 6 Galena Park (Texas) North Shore had the ball, and No. 5 Duncanville (Texas) was left with the heartbreak.

Trailing 36-35 with just three seconds remaining, North Shore found its Texas Class 6A state title hopes resting on a miracle, 45 yards from the end zone with just one snap to cover the ground. Mustangs sophomore quarterback Dematrius Davis dropped back, danced in the backfield to buy his teammates time, then heaved a monster pass to the right corner of the end zone. He had two receivers in the vicinity, with three Duncanville defenders between them.

WOW!! What an ending to the #UILState Championships!! North Shore 41 Duncanville 36 HAIL MARY!! pic.twitter.com/3Efnwcx0oU

As good a pass as it was, there are no logical circumstances under which the ball should have been caught. But this was no logical game. The game featured two epic collections of underclass talent — 31 Division I scholarship holders and growing — and generated even more attention after Duncanville eliminated state superpower (and previous USA TODAY SUPER 25 No. 1) Allen a week earlier.
On Saturday, Duncanville appeared poised to be the team to escape with the last-minute bragging rights, scoring to take a 36-35 victory with just 1:08 remaining. Given the fierce defense played by both sides, that appeared too little time for North Shore to mount a final rally … but it did. Davis connected with receivers to move down the field quickly, then let loose with his now already famous heave which landed in the hand of receiver A.J. Carter for the game-winning touchdown.
The loss cost Duncanville coach Reginald Samples his first-ever state title — he previously fell short in double overtime when leading Dallas Lincoln — and kept Duncanville from its first state crown in an even 30 years. Samples’ reaction alone was so priceless and painful that it immediately gave berth to a series of memes online.

The loss was epic, but was so was the game. North Shore led 29-20 by halftime with a controlled passing attack, but Duncanville’s explosive offense kept pace just as its dominant defense got its footing back in the third quarter. That set the stage for Duncanville’s late comeback, and North Shore’s even later rally, capping the kind of play that makes any game an instant classic. This was certainly no exception.

Illinois commit Marquez Beason living a dream as UA All-American

Duncanville (Texas) High School cornerback Marquez Beason received his Under Armour All-America Game jersey Thursday at his school as part of the American Family Insurance Selection Tour.
“This is a dream come true,” Beason said Thursday. “This morning I woke up and just felt blessed to be in this position.”

A 5-10, 174-pound cornerback and wide receiver, Beason is the 11th-ranked cornerback and the 91st-ranked player overall in the country, according to ESPN. He committed to Illinois in March, choosing to join head coach Lovie Smith and the Fighting Illini after receiving nearly 30 FBS scholarship offers.

Beason said he doesn’t have any visits to other schools planned and that he hopes to make his official visit to the school in December.
“The coaching staff made me feel right at home,” Beason said. “I felt like it was the right decision for me.”
Before he heads to Champaign, though, Beason hopes to lead the Panthers (7-0) deep into the always competitive Texas high school postseason.
“I feel pretty good about where we are right now,” Beason said. “We’ve been working hard this whole year, looking forward to the playoffs and facing some great teams there.”
There will be a pair of great teams in Florida in early January, and Beason will be a part of one of them.
“I look forward to having fun with some of the top guys in the country, to learning from some of the great coaches they’ll have there,” Beason said. “It feels good to be a part of this fraternity, to see the top guys who play in the NFL who have played in this game, and to see how this game will translate to college football.”
The Under Armour All-America Game is scheduled for Jan. 3 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. and will be televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. EST.
