IT WAS TRULY A YEAR TO REMEMBER IN HOUSTON WHEN IT CAME TO THE GRIDIRON.

North Shore stole the show with arguably the greatest finish in the history of Texas high school football with a Hail Mary to defeat Duncanville with no time left.

Dematrius Davis Jr. and Ajani Carter will forever go down in football lore for that play.

North Shore finished the season a perfect 16-0, making it the greatest team to ever come out of the #Eastside. The title marked the third in program history for the Mustangs and second in the last three years.

In the private school world, Kinkaid did its job and defended its Southwestern Preparatory Conference Championship.

The Falcons, powered by Hawaii-signee Zach Daniel at quarterback and LSU-bound Josh Williams at running back, were able to finish off the year 9-1-1, including beating Episcopal 41-14 in the title game.

It marked the second-straight SPC Championship for Kinkaid.

Other teams had remarkable seasons, including Shadow Creek, Fort Bend Marshall, The John Cooper School and St. Pius X.

In its first varsity campaign, Shadow Creek did something most teams can only dream about in their inaugural season – reach the state championship game.

The Sharks went a remarkable 15-0 to punch its ticket to the Class 5A Division II State Championship game, where it fell short to north Texas power Highland Park. Jamarian George was a whiz at running the offense, while Marquez Huland was a load to bring down coming out of the backfield. The job Brad Butler did in his first year leading the Sharks as a varsity program is nothing short of amazing.

Fort Bend Marshall made it to the state title game, despite having to go through one of the toughest things a team can – the loss of a teammate.
