Lake Travis High School, located on the outskirts of Austin, Texas, is on the verge of state history.
Never before has an 11-man football team in the state of Texas won five consecutive state championships. Last year, the Cavaliers became the first 4A or larger team (Texas has five classes, each split into two divisions when the playoffs roll around) to win four consecutive titles.
This year, the Cavaliers will attempt the unthinkable, and if they do, it's likely that senior Colin Lagasse will have played the biggest role of all.
There are greater college prospects in the state of Texas, players that are bigger, faster, stronger and louder than Lagasse. At 5-10 and 190 pounds, he's hardly cutting an imposing figure when he steps on the field. And he's about as soft spoken and humble as high school players come. But what Lagasse lacks in physical presence, he makes up for by being ever-present on the field. He does everything for Lake Travis, and he does it all well.
