Muenster finishes trifecta for fallen #3, claims 2A Football State Title

The Muenster football team plays for a state title on Thursday, after having already won state championships in Basketball and Baseball in the past year. Now they want a third -- and they're doing it all in honor of #3, Cal York, who died in a car acciden

Earlier this week we brought you the story of the Muenster Hornets, and their determination to win a third consecutive state championship -- basketball, followed by baseball, and now followed by football -- in honor of their late teammate, Cal York, who wore #3.

Well, the Hornets pulled it off.  A 27-20 win over Tenaha in the 2A Division II Championship game capped off the magical year for Muenster -- but of course a bittersweet campaign as well.

York passed away in a car accident in May, just as the baseball team was closing in on their state title. York was a starter on the basketball team that won a title just months prior. And this fall, his close friends on the football team made sure the entire program would wear his #3 on the side of their helmets, remembering their friend.

Well, they have done so in spades. Three straight state championships, and not a single loss in baseball or football since York passed. And now they have their three titles for #3.
