Saturday’s state championship game between Havelock and Concord came down to a battle of two of the state’s top running backs – Derrell Scott of the Rams and Rocky Reid of the Spiders.

Both appeared to appreciate each other’s efforts. After the game, Reid – who carried the ball 41 times for 218 yards and a touchdown – made a point of going up to Scott, embracing him and congratulating him.

Scott earned Most Valuable Player honors with a 209-yard, three-touchdown effort.

On the season, Reid finished with 3,325 yards rushing and 39 touchdowns, while Scott totaled 2,143 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Reid is just a junior, while Scott finished his high school career with three state championships and more than 6,000 career rushing yards.


Early in the second quarter, Havelock’s Joey Godette was taken from the sidelines on a stretcher. He was helped off the field by the sports medicine staff, and coach Jim Bob Bryant later reported that Godette had a dislocated shoulder. Godette was in on one tackle before getting hurt.
