The Woodlands Highlanders, which swept through both the regular season and the rest of 12-6A, saw their state title run come up one step short as they dropped a 41-13 decision to Lake Travis in the Class 6A Division I state championship game at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium on Saturday night.
With the loss, The Woodlands’ run at its first ever state title came to a close while Lake Travis won its sixth championship and its first at the state’s highest classification.
Lake Travis QB Charlie Brewer, Class 6A’s Offensive Player of the Year, finished with 434 total yards of offense to go along with four touchdowns as The Woodlands allowed its second highest point total of the season. Lufkin scored 42 against the Highlanders when the teams met in Shenandoah on Sept. 30.
Meanwhile the Highlanders were held to a total of 291 yards.
Eric Schmid led the Highlanders with 131 yards to go along with two touchdowns on 16-of-24 passing. Carlos Ramos ran for 91 yards on 21 carries.
