For the second time this year, Frisco’s Lone Star HIgh School, ranked No. 33 in the High School Football America 100 national rankings, snapped a Highland Park streak. During the regular season, the Rangers ended No. 46 Highland Park’s 33-game win streak; Friday afternoon, LS ended the Scots streak of three straight Texas high school football state championships.
Lone Star beat Highland Park 33-27 to advance to the Class 5A Division I state quarterfinals. After HP missed a field goal attempt on the first possession in overtime, Jaden Nixon scored the game-winning touchdown.
