Glenn O’Neil, a 1979 Houston High School graduate, recently led the Scott City, Kan., boys’ basketball team to the 3A state championship.

Scott City defeated Minneapolis 55-53 on a shot with 2.6 remaining.

O’Neil also led the Beavers to the state championship in 2006. The school has won three basketball state titles.

“I think this one is different in that the other one was expected,” O’Neil said.
