Skyline High School braces for its semi-final game against Allen High School this weekend. All eyes are on the 14-0 team, as they have a chance to bring home a state title, the first time since Sunset’s 1950 win, if they can advance past Allen.

Senior defensive linemen Zach Abercrumbia spoke with WFAA-TV Ch. 8 about his plans after the gridiron, and why he has committed to a university with high academic standards over powerhouse athletic programs.
