Lake Highlands #20 Tre Johnson (Jr.) — the nations #1 recruit in the class of 2024 — slams home an exclamation point dunk in the closing seconds of the UIL 6A Championship win over 2-time defending 5A State Champion Beaumont United. It was Lake Highlands’ second trip ever to the state tournament, winning the 3A title back in 1968. (And yes, that is the student section extending from behind the backboards to behind the bench.)
