Tenaha 52 Munday 28 (Final)
ARLINGTON, TX (KTRE) – The 1A Division II State championship goes to the Tenaha Tigers. The Tigers win 52 - 28 over the Munday Moguls, with Reginald Davis leading the overall charge and receiving the player of the game designation while Assuntay Cleaver receives defensive MVP honors.
It was a tremendous effort by the Tigers who played a solid four quarters to seal their undefeated season with a state championship crown.
The televised game at Cowboys stadium didn't seem to phase the Tigers at all, especially star quarterback Reginald Davis. Davis finished the game with 242 yards passing, 226 yards rushing and even an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown.
When it was over Davis finished with 6 total touchdowns for the Tigers. Coach Terry Ward said his offense was great, but gave his defense some special recognition.
"This is what you dream of, our offense stepped up but my hat is off to our defense," said Ward. "They did an excellent job, this team has been averaging fifty points a game and our defense stepped up and played lights out."
After the celebration was over Davis, still beaming with pride, spoke about finally winning this state championship the Tigers had worked so long for.
"When we were in 8th grade we all told each other we could win it all one day," said Davis. "Now finally our hard work paid off for us."
The state championship is the school's first since 1998 and their second football championship in school history.
