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.”

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."
