Down 19-0 in the third quarter to Ellison on Friday night, Killeen High junior quarterback Marcellus Johnson still felt his team was going to do something special.

“I felt it the whole time,” Johnson said afterward. “The whole game, I felt it. I was like, ‘I know we’re going to win this game. We’re going to do this.'”
