The Texas Class 6A Division I high school title game was decided in unbelievable fashion on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium.
North Shore had the ball at Duncanville’s 45-yard line, trailing 36-35 with three seconds left. Quarterback Dematrius Davis threw a Hail Mary into the back right corner of the end zone, and A.J. Carter incredibly came down with it to give North Shore a walk-off, title-winning 41-36 victory.
In one of the most amazing plays you will EVER see, @NSNationFB wins on a Hail Mary heave to the end zone!#UILonFOX pic.twitter.com/dLF0dkDQO4

And the call and reaction of the play from the TexanLive.Com crew may even top the play itself. The TexanLive broadcast was audio-only, but there was a camera on the announcers during the entire game.
That turned out to be a great thing, because we get to see the broadcasters’ incredible reaction to the finish that looks just like how any North Shore fans must have while watching in the stands or on television.
Play-by-play man Chase Snyder made a tremendous call of the play, and proceeded to go bonkers with his screaming, cackling broadcast partner Bert Brocker in the booth.
You know that Hail Mary that North Shore won on to win the state championship? I got to call that. The camera was on me for the call. Here it is. What a weekend. pic.twitter.com/yR1IG1Khql
