AUSTIN (KXAN) — Westlake scored early and often to cruise to a 70-10 win over Buda Johnson to wrap up the 6A-District 26 championship and notch the program’s 50th consecutive win Thursday at Chaparral Stadium.
It’s the third consecutive district title for the Chaps, who will take on either Round Rock or Cedar Ridge in the bi-district round of the state playoffs next week. The 50th consecutive win puts the Chaps No. 3 all-time in Texas high school football history for longest win streaks. The Chaps passed Southlake Carroll’s 49-game winning streak set from 2004-07 and Bremond’s 49-game winning streak from 2014-17.

Westlake now trails Allen, who won 57 games in a row from 2012-15, and Celina, winners of 68 straight games from 1998-2002, on the all-time list.
Against Buda Johnson, Westlake’s quarterbacks went a perfect 17-for-17 and threw for 324 yards. Paxton Land, Brett Skinner and Marson Monsavais all took snaps for the Chaps on Senior Night. Sophomore running back Grady Bartlett ran for 70 yards on eight carries with three touchdowns.
Westlake led 57-0 at halftime. With 15 seconds left in the first half, Westlake senior receiver Carter Prinsen not only hauled in his first varsity reception, but the 4-yard pass from Skinner was also his first-ever varsity touchdown.
Wide receiver Hunter Lake saw his first action for the Chaps since an injury in the season opener knocked him out of the rotation. It didn’t look like he missed a beat, however, as he hauled in a 32-yard pass down the sideline in the second quarter to set up a Bryce Chambers 12-yard touchdown run with 4:59 left in the second quarter.
Buda Johnson was able to end the shutout with a 34-yard touchdown pass from Bryan Forsberg to Zach May with 8:40 left in the game. As time waned in the fourth, Jaguars place kicker Patrick Hellen booted a 44-yard field goal to cap the scoring.
Westlake (10-0, 8-0) will now wait to see who they’ll take on in the bi-district round of the state playoffs. Buda Johnson (4-6, 4-4) finished a spot out of playoff contention and the Jags’ season is now over.
Final: Chaparrals 70, Jaguars 10. Chaps wrap up the district title in emphatic fashion and it’s the 50th win in a row for the program. Incredible.
