The ESD Eagles' quarterback, Patrick Burke, suffered a rough ankle injury in the second play of the game. Burke continued to play throughout the game while nursing a limp and was able to guide the team to a pair of touchdowns through the first half of the game. Despite playing a tough game, the Eagles were unable to keep up with the momentum Kinkaid brought to the field.
Bell led the Falcons with confidence throughout the entirety of the game- a quality that will surely help him succeed in the SEC. The Georgia commit posted a rushing touchdown, a touchdown reception, and a touchdown pass during the SPC State Title win. Bell finished the day with 148 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns on 22 carries.
Kinkaid quarterback David Capobianco also had an incredible outing on the day. Capobianco threw for 219 yards and three touchdowns while completing 70% of his passes. Micah Bell, younger brother of Dillon Bell, rushed for 120 yards and also brought down one interception. Cameron Henry posted two touchdowns and 102 receiving yards on four catches.

"When I went [to Washington]it was so different," Megwa said. "I've been to all the nice and beautiful campuses, but when I went there it was different. The whole team loved each other. Even the fifth-string running back- he was talking like he was the star because the coaches treat him the same as the starting running back."
Megwa has spent the last three seasons of his high school career at Fort Worth Nolan Catholic. During his junior season, Megwa played a key role in leading the Vikings to the 2020 TAPPS State Championship game. The 6-foot-1 athlete rushed for 730 yards and 12 touchdowns as well as recording 113 receiving yards and two more scores.
Megwa transferred to Timber Creek in January where he will finish his high school football career this fall donning a Falcons jersey. Megwa becomes the seventh 2022 prospect to commit to Washington. According to a 247Sports composite, he is ranked as the No. 43 recruit in Texas in the class of 2022.
Megwa chose Washington our the likes of Alabama, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Florida, LSU, North Texas, Oklahoma, Oregon, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and more.
