While the coronavirus pandemic has done a lot of bad to the 2020 high school football season, one thing is did good, was set-up a season opening showdown between defending Texas high school football champs North Shore and Shadow Creek. This weekend was the regular season opener for the Class 6A and 5A schools after the 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A schools have been playing for a month.
North Shore, the defending two-time Class 6A Division I champs, beat the defending 5A Division I champs 38-21, giving the Mustangs 16 straight victories. It was the first-ever regular season loss for Shadow Creek, which in two years of varsity football has advanced to back-to-back state championship games, winning the title in 2019.
North Shore quarterback Dematrius Davis, who has given his verbal commitment to Auburn, completed 14 of 20 for 197 yards and one touchdown with one pick. He rushed for another 78 yards and a score on 14 carries.
TOUCHDOWN: @NSNationFB QB @Dematrius09 with the exclamation point!! A 20-yard touchdown run where he juked a defender into his own teammate!! (SOUND UP!) … and then Davis had to dance! #txhsfb @SimoneEli_TV @KPRC2RandyMc— vypehouston (@vypehouston) September 26, 2020
