"It's definitely about the leadership. Our seniors are top-notch. They come to work every day. It’s hard to outwork any of those seniors because they come to work, and they practice hard every single day.  They bring some spirit, and they also uplift the younger guys. They lead, I mean they've been leading them since day one," said Summit head coach Emund Prichett.

In Class 6A, Lake Highlands and DeSoto face off Friday night for a spot in the title game.

In Class 4A, Faith Family Academy of Oak Cliff takes on Canyon Randall from the Amarillo area.
