North Shore will be attempting to win their second straight state title, but will have to do so without star running back Zach Evans. Channel 2 sports confirmed that due to a violation of team rules, Evans will be held out of Saturday’s 6A division I state title game.

The Mustangs had a policy that required their players to turn in their cell phones prior to the game in an effort to have the players focus on the game. Evans refused apparently and the decision was made to hold him out of the game.

Evans is one of the most highly rated recruits in the nation and has yet to announce his commitment, choosing not to sign on Wednesday’s national signing day this past week.

North Shore will face Duncanville in the title game (at 3 p.m.) for the second year in a row, winning last season on the game’s final play, a hail mary touchdown pass from Dematrius Davis to Ajani Carter.
