Havelock to start selling championship T-shirts on Monday

New Bern beat Porter Ridge 39-38 on Nov. 30 to win the 4A state championship when Jachin Watkins scored the game-winning touchdown with just 26 seconds left in the game.

Havelock trailed Concord 21-20 at halftime but scored 35 straight points in the second half to win its second straight 3A championship, 55-21.

Players and coaches from both teams accepted the T-shirts on Thursday at Kellum’s office in downtown New Bern.

“That’s one of the big things about winning a state championship, they get a state championship ring to show off their hard work,” Havelock coach Jim Bob Bryant said.

“Our guys are lucky enough to get two in a row. We will be back next year for our third one.”

Besides the shirts, both schools are also collecting monetary donations to purchase championship rings. Contact the respective school for more information.
