2017 NCHSAA Football 4A State Championship

2017 NCHSAA Football 4A State Championship Review

Wake Forest and Harding University (Charlotte) have won the 2017 NCHSAA Football 4A State Championship (4AA & 4A).

4AA State Championship

Wake Forest 21, Mallard Creek 0

Wake Forest is back-to-back 4AA state champions. For the second time in two years, the Cougar defense posts a shutout in the title game to claim the crown. This season, the previously undefeated Mallard Creek Mavericks fell victim to the stifling Wake Forest defense. “For me, a state championship is a state championship,” Wake Forest head coach Reggie Lucas told reporters after the game. “It’s the ultimate win for any high school football team. Going against a team like Mallard Creek, with an established program like over there, obviously, we’re proud that.”

Second Half

For three and a half quarters, the game was a scoreless bloodbath. Then the Mavericks made the mistake of the game. While attempting a punt from midfield, MC had a snap over the punters head. The Mavs recovered the ball, but the Cougars took over on downs. WF set up shop on the Mavericks 17-yard line and five plays later were in the end zone. John Jiles and QB Chris James connected on a 20-yard pass for the score (Parris PAT).

On the ensuing possession, a holding penalty and a false start stymied the drive and forced another Mavs punt. Three plays later, Cougar RB Marquis Dunn took a misdirection 54-yards to the house. With three minutes left in the game, WF now held a 14-0 lead (Parris PAT).

In late desperation mode, the Mavericks dream of a state title ended with an interception by UNC-commit, safety Javon Terry. From one future Heel to another, Devon Lawrence put the final bow on the game. The senior RB took in a 7-yard scamper for a touchdown (Parris PAT) to push the final tally to 21-0.

Stats and Notes

Lawrence was the MVP of the game. In total, he amassed 135 yards on 25 carries and the touchdown. Marquis Dunn finished with 69 yards on six carries. John Jiles (5 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, a 15-yard sack, and the game-winning TD reception) was all over the field Saturday.

Reggie Lucas’ team has now won 31-straight games. The 21-0 final score is the lowest of any state title game since classifications were split into the AA/A format in 2002.


4A State Championship

Harding University 30, Scotland County 22

Two seasons ago, the Harding Univesity High School football program went 1-10, now they are state champs. “I love these kids,” Coach Sam Greiner said after the victory over Scotland County. “It’s a family and when you build yourself together like that, there’s more than Xs and Os. Something special happens when a family happens. I saw something deep in these kids and I said, ‘We’ll be something special if God can keep us healthy.’ He kept us just healthy enough. It was a beautiful thing.” The state championship is Harding’s first since 1953 and third overall.

It worth mentioning Scotland was without their leading rusher, the national player of the year and Georgia commit, Zamir White. White injured his knee in the 3rd round of the playoffs. After defeating undefeated Hoggard 47-46 last week without White, the Scots knew they still had a good shot at the title. In White’s absence, QB Warren Bell picked up the slack.

First Half

Through much of the first half, Bell exchanged blows with the HU offensive tandem of QB Braheam Murphy and RB Quavaris Crouch. First to score was Bell, who led the Scots on a scoring drive early in the first quarter. With the Scots up 7, it was Crouch’s turn. At the start of the second quarter, the stud junior punched in a ten-yard run. On the ensuing drive, Bell went back to work. After seven plays and 85 yards, Bell was back in the end zone with a four-yard run. SC back on top 14-7.

Harding answered right back on their next possession. Halfway through the second quarter, Crouch and the Rams were back in the end zone. Game tied 14-14. In their final drive of the half, the Scots stalled out and punted. To end the half, Murphy and Crouch led the Rams downfield and Alejandro Guevara rewarded their efforts with a 39-yard field goal and three points. HU up 17-14 at the half.

Second Half

It was the Braheam Murphy show in the second half, more specifically the fourth quarter. To begin the fourth, Murphy found Reggie Burns with a 20-yard strike for a touchdown to extend the lead to 24-14. 

With the championship in their hands, Trayvon Corbett and the Rams defensive unit took the Scots best shot but never broke. In consecutive possessions, SC drove deep into Harding territory but came up short in both instances. A magnificent Marquise Nelson interception of Warren Bell and a turnover on downs all but ended the Scots title hopes.

After the turnover on downs, Braheam Murphy put the ultimate final nail in the SC coffin. Murphy found a hole a ran 95-yards to the promised land with two minutes left in the game. HU 30-14. 

As time ran down, Bell led the Scots on a final scoring drive capped off by a touchdown pass to Bruce Wall. However, HU recovered the onside kick attempt and ran out the clock.

Stats and Notes

Quavaris Crouch was named MVP of the game. He finished with two touchdowns and 141 yards on 23 carries. Braheam Murphy had an MVP-type performance as well. Murphy completed 3 of 6 attempts for 53 passing yard and a touchdown to go with 135 rushing yards on ten attempts and a score. Murphy also caught a pass for 56-yards. 

Warren Bell finished the game 7 of 10 passing for 153 passing yards and 111 rushing yards. Bell had three total touchdowns.

Friday Night Spotlight 11/3

Week 12 Top 25

The time is now. It’s the final week of the regular season, week 12. There are so many things on the line tonight. Undefeated seasons, conference championships, playoff berths, and hometown pride all hang in the balance. Without a doubt, they’ve saved the best for last. Across the state, massive match-ups will change the landscape of the season.

Just north of Raleigh, two of the best teams in the state and fierce rivals, Wake Forest and Heritage, will battle for the rights to an undefeated season and the Northern 4A Conference Title. In another matchup between undefeated squads, Glenn hosts West Forsyth with the Central Piedmont 4A Championship on the line. Down in Wilmington, New Hanover and Hoggard put their undefeated records on the table for Mideastern Conference supremacy.

In one of two bouts between the top two teams in the classification, #1 Charlotte Catholic hosts #2 Marvin Ridge for the Southern Carolina 3A Championship. The other matchup between number one and number two features #2 Shelby (9-1, 4-0) at #1 South Point (10-0, 4-0). The winner of that heavyweight fight will earn the Southwestern 2A Championship.

We hope you are ready. Tonight’s games are going to be phenomenal.

Friday Night Recap Week 9

Friday Night Spotlight Game of the Week

#16 Seventy-First (6-2) 35, #6 Scotland (6-1) 56

In his first feature in the Friday Night Spotlight, Zamir White reminded everyone why he’s the nation’s top running back. The future Georgia Bulldog showed out Friday Night scoring the Scots first three touchdowns of the game including a massive 81-yard dash through several arm tackles to the house. Basically, the power of the Scotland running game was too overwhelming for a Seventy-First squad that has very well over the course of the season but had yet to face a team with the firepower Scotland has.

White and Scotland QB Warren Bell utilized the read-option to perfection all night long. Combined, the duo of White and Bell totaled 597 yards (White: 307, Bell: 290) and scored all 8 Scot touchdowns (Bell: 5, White 3); all rushing. The two also connected on two passes for 48 yards. Bell and Scotland head coach Richard Bailey gave credit to their offensive line after the game. Warren Bell: “The offensive line was blocking well, and we were executing the plays. Seventy-First is a good team, so we tried to come out and get momentum on our side early.” Bailey harped more of the same, “When we’ve got all of our offensive line back, like we had tonight…, it doesn’t really even matter that they know it’s coming.”

Kyler Davis did his best to keep Seventy-First within striking distance. The junior QB was 15 for on 26 pass attempts for 195 yards and all five Falcon touchdowns; four of which were caught by senior Reggie Bryant. Running back Fabion Jones added 117 yards on 17 carries. Seventy-First’s 35 points are the most points allowed to an opponent by Scotland all season.

Early in the 3rd Quarter, only down 21-35 at this point, Seventy-First was marching downfield looking to cut the lead to a single touchdown. On the Scotland 30-yard line, Kyler Davis made his only, yet most devastating mistake of the game. The Falcon QB had single coverage on the outside and his wide receiver was even with his defender. Had Davis put more power behind his throw and led his receiver to the back of the end zone, they had a perfect shot at a touchdown. Instead, the pass was underthrown and fell right into an aware Davon Ratliffe’s hands for an interception on the three-yard line.

On the next drive, Scotland took the ball all the way downfield for another Bell touchdown. The 14-play drive and score pushed the lead to 42-21 and completely deflated Seventy-First’s chances. “We really got just enough stops to get us a little bit of a cushion which was big,” Bailey said after the game; adding “We went 97 yards to go down and score, and that’s big in a game like this.”

The win moves Scotland County (6-1, 4-0) into sole possession of first place in the Sandhills Athletic 4A Conference. This Friday they play at home against conference foe Pinecrest (5-3, 2-2). Seventy-First (6-2, 3-1) will look to get back in the win column at home verses Purnell Swett (3-5, 0-4).

 Like last week’s FNS Game of the Week winner, D.W. Butler, Scotland County came into Friday Night’s bout with only one blemish on their record. Also like Butler, the Fighting Scots only loss came in their opening game of the season to now-#1 Mallard Creek. A true testament to how impressive the Mavericks season has progressed. They’ve beaten three of the current top six teams in the state. Don’t tell Wake Forest, Heritage, or West Forsyth though, I’m sure they’d love to get a crack at Mallard Creek.
