Red Raiders Clench State Title

Tyler Lee grabbed today's Class 5A State Football Championship, beating Spring Westfield 28-21 in San Antonio. Lee led 28-to-7 with nine minutes left before Spring Westfield rallied for two touchdowns and was driving late for the possible tying score. But with 22 seconds left, Lee's Warren Dehaven intercepted Pierre Beasley, preserving a 28-to-21 win and Lee's first state title. Lee (12-and-3) took a 28-to-7 lead on Josh Hill's 25-yard touchdown pass to Peyton Price. It capped a dominant offensive performance by Lee, which controlled the ball thanks to Tyrone Ross' 171 yards on 24 carries. Spring Westfield (13-and-2) got two quick scores on a 75-yard pass from Beasley to Michael Ridge and a 4-yard run by Beasley with 3:52 left.
