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.”

AUSTIN – Dalton Holland didn't know if he'd be able to get back to state in 2019.

At the beginning of the season, the Barbers Hill senior sprained his ankle badly, which forced him to be in a boot for two to three weeks and miss the first half of the track season.

"I had some doubts, I didn't think I'd be able to come back," Holland said.

Battling his way back through the therapy, Holland was able to qualify for state for a second-straight year and on Friday the senior left it all on the track.

Holland posted a time of 14.19 to claim the silver in the Class 5A 110-meter hurdles.

"Makes it a lot sweeter victory," Holland said about coming back to get the win.

In 2018, Holland came to state for the first time and ended up finishing fifth overall, fueling him to come back better this season.

"Last year I was pretty nervous coming in my first year," Holland said. "This year, I was more calm and under control. I knew what was coming."
