ARLINGTON - Crosby wanted points first and got points first. And when Aledo responded with a long TD throw to Alabama-commit Jojo Earle, Crosby responded again to go up 14-7.
From there, it was all Aledo, which used a six-touchdown day from Demarco Roberts - 3rd most all-time in a 5A state title game - to turn a close game after the first quarter into a blowout by halftime. In the end, Aledo cruised to a 56-21 win to secure its state-record 10th title - 3rd straight overall.
What you see above is what Roberts did all day to the Crosby defense. Even when Crosby looked to have Aledo in bad situations, Aledo found a way to overcome them - whether it was a punt turned into a first down run by the punter or Roberts ripping off a 34-yard run on 1st and 25.
Roberts finished with 258 yards rushing and quarterback Brayden Fowler-Nicolosi had a solid day, connecting on 15 of his 19 pass attempts for 216 yards and two scores
