Josh Williams wasn’t going to get to play for a third SPC Football State Championship.

Williams, who was Kinkaid’s leading rusher throughout the season – 1,238 yards and 16 touchdowns rushing – had to stand on the sideline and watch due to an injury.

What he watched was his younger brother – Jordan – a 15-year-old freshman take over the game in his place.

In Kinaid’s 41-21 victory, for the program’s second-straight SPC 4A State Championship, Jordan’s stat line was video-game worthy – 202 yards rushing, one touchdown, 63 yards receiving and a touchdown, 33 yards passing and a touchdown and one interception.

“Coming into this game I just had him in my mind this whole game,” Jordan said about playing for his brother. “I was just trying do whatever I had to do to win. On defense I was trying to come up with hits. I know I have basketball season coming up but I was just like ‘I need to win for my brother’. On offense, I just saw a hole and I hit it.”

When added up, Jordan racked up 298 yards of offense and three touchdowns – one passing, rushing and receiving – and the defensive play for the interception.

“That’s special,” Kinkaid coach Nathan Larned said. “We knew he was a special player that’s why he’s been starting at free safety from day one.”
