Shawnee Mission Northwest junior LaPhonso McKinnis is at the foot of a staircase inside Hartman Arena, rolling in what looked to be a state of delirium and just a little bit of pain in his knee. Surrounding McKinnis are teammates, classmates and coaches, the latter reminding those who pass by that McKinnis just won the Class 6A state championship in just his second season.
