You probably woke up this morning and saw “Highland Park” trending on Twitter and might’ve wondered what it was all about. Well, we had a major “Friday Night Lights” situation take place in the Texas high school football state championship last night and it was all because Jerry Jones’ grandson, John Stephen, stuffed the stat sheet like nobody has in a Texas state title game finishing with 564 yards and 4 TDs.
Oh, and the game itself was unreal. I’m not going to break down everything, but as you can see below, we’re looking at a score of 49-46, John Stephen’s team (Highland Park) down and he does this:
At that point, he was well over 500 yards on the game before the throwing the game-winning TD.
But the drama didn’t end there. Manvel still had a chance and went right down the field to set up this final play.

BRUTAL. Highland Park and John Stephen go back-to-back and Manvel goes home a few feet short. I believe the scripts are already being written for this feature film as we speak.
Also, if you think there’s a chance Jerry gives up the Cowboys before he’s able to draft his QB grandson, you’re outside your mind.
