The West Orange-Stark Mustangs shook off a slow start to beat the Celina Bobcats 22-3 for the State 4A Div II football championship. The Mustangs were led by QB Jack Dallas, who was celebrating his 17th birthday and was named MVP after scoring two touchdowns.
Celina lost their starting QB Conner Pingleton to a serious injury on the opening drive, but still drove inside the WOS 10 yard line. The Bobcats back up QB Caleb Knowles fumbled inside the five yard line and the Mustangs recovered.
