Here’s what we learned Friday in Class AA:
Who will be crowned the 2013 Class AA champion?
- Lamar County
- The Lamar County Trojans have reached the state finals for the first time in school history, beating the Benedictine Cadets 10-7. The Trojans (14-0) trailed 7-0, but completed their rally of the Cadets (13-1) with a 24-yard field goal as time expired. Trojans coach Franklin Stephens is on the verge of repeating history. If Lamar County wins the state title, Stephens will again have brought a program its first-ever state title in just his second season coaching them. He coached the Tucker Tigers to a AAAA title in 2008 and the Tigers won another in ‘11 for a 15-0 season. For the Cadets, it was the first time they had been challenged this season. Heading into their game against the Trojans, no team had come closer than 21 points, and the Cadets had outscored their competition 613-81.
- The Lovett Lions will meet the Trojans in
