HOUSTON – Kinkaid is just unstoppable.

The Falcons’ football program has historically been known to win titles – 29 entering this year’s SPC Championship game – but the last few years have been special.

After having a six-season drought without a title, 2004-2009, Episcopal had won five SPC Championships in the last eight seasons heading into Saturday’s title game and weren’t looking to slow down.

Zach Daniel threw for 214 yards and four scores, Victor Garza had seven catches for 119 yards and three touchdowns, Jordan Williams had 202 yards rushing and rushing, passing and receiving scores and Kinkaid defeated Episcopal 41-21 for the 2018 SPC 4A State Championship at Delmar Stadium.

“Tonight was just thrilling for me,” Williams said. “I was out there playing for my bother. You don’t know how much passion I was playing with out there. I just wanted to win it for my brother. I’m so happy right now.”
