It’s a game that players and fans on both sides may never forget. It was capped off with a game that Bally Sports Southwest named among the best of the decade.
Four-star quarterback Dematrius Davis, now at Alabama State, booted the ball from around the 46-yard line into the end zone. AJ Carter, now at Utah State, jumped with three defenders and a teammate around him and made a remarkable catch.
The successful Hail Mary gave North Shore the 41-38 victory, putting the team on track to win three championships in the next four years with hopes of a fourth title this year.
It was wild game that includes at least 31 players with DI offers. North Shore led 29-20 at halftime, but Duncanville took over in the second half, taking a 36-35 lead with just 1:08 left in the game.
That was enough time for Davis, a sophomore at the time, to get North Shore down the field and pray. They won the game, went 16-0 and earned the MaxPreps vote as national champions.
