Graham is no stranger to the 7-on-7 Division II state title game. The Steers fell to Celina in 2012 before bouncing back with a win over Argyle a year ago.

Often times, experience makes all the difference. And it did for Graham this weekend as the Steers topped Prestonwood, one of the top private schools in the state, 47-45.

Despite not having star defensive back Mike Freeze, a TCU commit, available, Graham made a couple of key defensive plays late, including stopping Prestonwood’s 2-point conversion as time expired.
