Jonesboro and Borden County are both highly regarded in six-man football as two of the best in the state. Now, they will face off against each other for the 1A Division I title in Arlington.
Jonesboro enters this game at 14-0 and have used a strong running game to put themselves in position to win a state title. The Eagles have been battle tested so far in the postseason, with close wins over Zephyr and Union Hill each of the last two weeks. Ethan Lilljedahl and Robert Robuck have stepped up big in recent weeks and will be the workhorses for the offense. The Eagles will also be playing in their first ever state championship title game and the question will be how they handle the pressure.
On the other side, Borden County has been simply dominant for most of the season with six shutouts during the regular season. They may have had one of their best performances of the season last week in a 92-58 win against a Happy team that was considered to be another top contender for the title. Hunter Jones makes the offense tick, accounting for 3200 yards and 55 touchdowns this season. He’s been a quarterback on a mission this season and he will be a big piece for the Coyotes as they try to win their fourth state title after falling just short of making the championship last year.
The two teams face off against each other on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at AT&T Stadium.
