It didn’t take long for Lake Travis ju­nior Zach Davies to ad­just to big-time high school foot­ball in Texas.

Af­ter mov­ing from In­di­ana, where he lived for the pre­vi­ous 10 years, Davies en­rolled at Lake Travis last win­ter. At 6 feet, 2 inches and 230 pounds, he was a per­fect fit on the de­fen­sive line of the five-time state cham­pion Cava­liers.

On Thurs­day, Davies was se­lected to the Texas As­so­ci­ated Press Sports Edi­tors Class 5A all-state team. He was a first-team honoree while Cava­liers kicker Kevin Mar­cotte, a se­nior, was named to the sec­ond team.

Hen­drick­son run­ning back Sa­maje Per­ine, a ju­nior, also was a sec­ond-team honoree.

Davies fin­ished the reg­u­lar sea­son with 74 tack­les — 24 for loss of yardage — and 12.5 sacks. He had a sea­son-high 10 tack­les in an early sea­son vic­tory over Westwood.

Per­ine helped Hen­drick­son to the District 16-5A cham­pi­onship, rush­ing for 2,017 yards and 15 touch­downs.

Mar­cotte made 11 of his 13 field-goal at­tempts and all 46 ex­tra points he at­tempted. His long­est field goal was a 50yarder against An­der­son.

Paul had a 57-yard touch­down in the first quar­ter, and the quar­ter­back scored from 55 and 60 yards dur­ing a de­ci­sive sec­ond-half surge. Mun­day lost to Te­naha 52-28 in last year’s ti­tle game.

L.J. Col­lier had a 36-yard in­ter­cep­tion re­turn for a touch­down, and Rod­drick Tay­lor added touch­down runs of 19 and 18 yards to help Mun­day (15-0) win its third state cham­pi­onship.

Class A Di­vi­sion I fi­nal: Stam­ford 35, Mart 28: Ha­gen Hutchin­son ac­counted for four touch­downs, in­clud­ing a 9-yard run that proved to be the game-win­ner with 32 sec­onds left, to lift Stam­ford to a 35-28 come-from-be­hind vic­tory over Mart in the Class A Di­vi­sion I state cham­pi­onship game Thurs­day.

The se­nior quar­ter­back/ de­fen­sive back was se­lected the game’s of­fen­sive and de­fen­sive Most Valu­able Player.

He ac­cu­mu­lated 132 yards rush­ing and had two rush­ing touch­downs. He also was 22for-30 pass­ing for 248 yards, with two scor­ing passes to James Washington.

On de­fense, Hutchin­son made 16 tack­les, and he sealed the vic­tory with an in­ter­cep­tion on Mart’s last-ditch ef­fort with 8 sec­onds left.
