District champion Memorial is best story in high school football

SBG San Antonio

SAN ANTONIO - They are the best story in the high school football playoffs this year, with the best celebration.

Memorial coach Kemmie Lewis does a backflip at midfield after every win.

The Memorial Minutemen are district champions for the first time ever. This is from a team that was 0-10 in 2016. A program that had gone winless in 9 of the last 13 seasons.

Think about that. Now they are in the playoffs, and if you think Memorial is just happy to get there, then you don't know Memorial.

Here are the matchups for 6A Division I Bi-district:

Madison at Lake Travis
