RALEIGH – The Havelock fans chanted from the stands – “MVP, MVP, MVP.”

Derrell Scott smiled, accepted his plaque and lifted it toward the crowd.

The speedy running back became the third Rams’ player to earn the 3A state championship Most Valuable Player Award.

“I don’t know how to describe it,” Scott said. “I couldn’t have done it without the honor to God, my teammates and coaches. Everybody helped put me in this position.”

Havelock was trailing by its worst deficit of the season – 10 points – early in the second quarter.

The Rams rode the back of their senior workhorse.

Scott, a four-star recruit, scored on touchdown runs of 51, 20 and 96 yards, and accounted for 21-unanswered points, in Havelock’s 21-13 victory over Concord in Saturday’s 3A state championship game at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh.
