Whitehaven brings home 6A State Championship | News
Something had to give between Whitehaven and Maryville.
A rematch of last year's Class 6A title game, with both the Tigers and Rebels 14-and-0 on the season.
Whitehaven hoping leading on Ole Miss commit and Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year Mark Dodson.
And for good reason, Dodson with four touchdowns of the night, but his biggest trip to the enzone was a game-winning 2-point conversion in overtime to lift Whitehaven to a 36-35 victory over Maryville.
It's the first championship for the Tigers, who finish their season 15-0.
Dodson finished with 318 yards and four TDs on 34 carries.
