HOUSTON – Add Lake Travis to the list.

That list being the perennial power programs in Texas high school football – Katy, Cy-Fair and now Lake Travis – that North Shore has dispatched each of the last three weeks to get to the final game of the year.

Zach Evans rushed for 196 yards and four touchdowns, and Dematrius Davis passed for 231 yards and two scores, as North Shore defeated Lake Travis 51-10 in the Class 6A Division I state semifinal inside NRG Stadium on Saturday.

"It has been phenomenal programs, well-coached programs, very talented programs that are working every bit as hard as we are," North Shore coach Jon Kay said. "We knew whoever was coming out of this Region III was going to be two things – a pretty good football team and pretty beat up."

"Then, you get out of the Region III gauntlet, and you line up against somebody like Lake Travis, and then obviously whoever wins [between Allen and Duncanville]. That'll be another barn-burner [next week]."

North Shore improves to 15-0, matching the best record ever held by a Mustangs' football team, which was set in 2003.

"We're a special team, but we still haven't unlocked our full ability yet," Evans said. "That shows you what our program can do to players."

The Mustangs advance to the program's third-ever state championship game, joining the 2003 and 2015 teams. North Shore won the state championship both games.

"That's quite an accomplishment," Kay said. "I'm really proud of the program. I'm proud of the community, and it's a community that deserves this. I'm happy for our community, and hopefully we represent it well."

HOUSTON – Trayveon Williams tucks the football into his arm, bursts from a still stance and is being pulled back by his trainer down the track.

Williams then moves over to a turf area where he works on footwork, shuffling his feet in between the yellow rungs on the ladder on the ground, while his trainer again pulls at the football.

It's all part of the plan to achieve a dream.

The former C.E. King and Texas A&M star running back is less than a month away from his childhood dream coming true and is continuing his work to get better every day counting down to the 2019 NFL Draft.

"It's crazy because growing up you have this dream and fantasy of doing this. Mine was saying I wanted to play in the NFL," Williams, who's Pro Day at Texas A&M is on March 26, said. "Going throughout college and having a pretty successful college career and making the decision is just mind-blowing that less than a month away my dream is about to come true."

Williams is coming off a solid showing at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis earlier this month.

The Aggie running back posted a 4.51 40-yard dash, 33-inch vertical, 121-inch broad jump, 19 reps on the 225-pound bench press and a 7.44-second 3-cone drill and 4.44-second 20-yard shuttle.

But the physical portion wasn't the part that took the most out of Williams.

"It was a lot of ups and downs," Williams said about the combine. "It was extremely fun. Believe it or not it was more mentally fatiguing than physically. It was a lot of stuff we had to do mentally but physically when you've been doing it your whole life it wasn't bad.
