CLASS 2A CHAMPIONSHIP CAPSULE
« on: December 14, 2017, 12:23:49 pm »
MOUNT IDA LIONS (14-0)
Head coach: Mike White
(114-41 overall and in 13 years at Mount Ida)
Playoff appearances: 25
Playoff record: 26-22
State championships: (2) 2016, 2007
State championship games (3rd)
2016 defeated Hampton, 27-26
2007 defeated Bearden, 17-16
FEARLESS FACTS: White is a Mount Ida graduate. … Mount Ida is playing in just its second-straight state championship game and third overall. … The Lions have been decided underdogs in its two previous state championship games, beating Hampton, 27-26, last year, halting a two-point conversion with 1:55 left, and beating Bearden, 17-16, in 2007 in one of the biggest upsets in state championship game history with a 22-yard field goal with 22 seconds left. … Both of Mount Ida’s championship wins were on sunny Saturday afternoons. … With 40 wins, this is the winningest senior class in school history. … Nine weeks ago, Mount Ida beat Foreman, 36-7, and went on to win the 2A-7 with the win. … In that game, neither team completed a pass with Foreman misfiring on all six attempts while Mount Ida did not attempt a pass while rushing 62 times for 395 yards and five touchdowns. … The Lions run the ball with 5,014 yards and 77 touchdowns on the ground while passing for just 426 yards and six scores. … Jonathan Lagrange leads Mount Ida’s rushing attack with 1,279 yards and 26 scores.

FEARLESS FACTS: King is in his second year at Foreman after spending four years as head coach at Horatio and three at Parkers Chapel. … The Gators are making their first appearance in a state championship game after winning its first semifinal game ever as well last week over Salem. … Foreman has won 12 games this season, which is the most since the 1956 team won 10. … This group of seniors won just one game as sophomores. … Like Mount Ida, Foreman prefers to run the football, rushing for 4,743 yards and 72 touchdowns in 13 games while throwing for just 473 yards and five scores. … Quarterback Kyren Batey guides the Flexbone offense with 1,832 yards and 32 touchdowns on just 138 carries. … C.J.
