Rams capture third straight state championship

Published: Saturday, December 14, 2013 at 05:11 PM.

Scott’s 20-yard touchdown with 59 seconds left in the first half lifted the Rams to a 14-10 halftime lead. And after Concord failed on a fourth-down pass into the end zone, Scott matched a school record with a 96-yard touchdown run, putting the Rams ahead 21-10 with 6:55 left in the third quarter.

Scott was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, rushing for 209 yards, ending his prep career with more than 6,000 career rushing yards and a third state championship.

“I don’t know how to describe it,” he said. “I just have to give all the glory to God and my teammates and coaches for putting me in the position to use my ability.”

Sabdo earned Havelock’s Most Outstanding Offensive Player award by throwing for 126 yards without an interception.

Senior linebacker Andrew Ramirez was the Most Outstanding Defensive Player for Havelock with 19 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks and a fumble recovery that stopped another Concord touchdown bid. Junior linebacker Anthony Fisher posted 18 tackles.

“I’m just so blessed to be a part of three state title teams and to have the best coaches and teammates,” Ramirez said. “It’s great to play with them.”

The Rams defeated the Spiders for the second-consecutive championship game, although it was much more dramatic than last year’s 55-21 decision.
