Whitehaven Brings Home 6A State Championship

Something had to give between Whitehaven and Maryville.

A rematch of last year's Class 6A title game, with both the Tigers and Rebels 14-and-0 on the season.

Whitehaven hoping leading on Ole Miss commit and Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year Mark Dodson.

And for good reason, Dodson with 4 touchdowns of the night, but his biggest trip to the enzone was a game-winning 2-point conversion in overtime to lift Whitehaven to a 36-35 victory over Maryville.

It's the first championship for the Tigers, who finish their season 15-0.

Dodson finished with 318 yards and four TDs on 34 carries.
