AUSTIN, TX — Saturday, December 11, 2021, at the Kelly Reeves Stadium, the visiting GPISD North Shore Mustangs wasted no time taking control of their destination to the 6A D1 State Championship football game by defeating Lake Travis 49-21. They have a 13-game winning streak with a 14-1 record.
Their game team captains were Caleb Flagg, Kent Battle, Jhalyn Bailey and Xavier Owens.
On Saturday, if Coach Jon Kay’s “Eastside Boys” are successful, he will set a new record for coaching 3 teams in winning 6A D1 championship titles. He has also coached the 2015 Mustangs to a state title in the 5A conference. They will play for their fifth state championship next week (2003, 2015, 2018, and 2019) against a familiar foe, the 13-1 Duncanville Panthers, in the Cowboys Arlington AT&T Stadium. This is their third time in four seasons to be playing for the championship.
