    One of the best games I have ever had the pleasure of listening to/watching, win or lose, much sweeter that it was win.

    It's great to see him put together such a productive, healthy senior season and meet the promise he displayed when I first noticed him a few years ago. Physically, I don't know if he's the prototype for a Belfry fullback, but he certainly has the grit and toughness to excel in that role.

    Great Game by both teams... but just watched the replay on local news of Belfry 4th down TD in 2nd OT. He was clearly down prior to end zone and reached out with the ball after down on the ground. Hate to see a game end on a bad call like that.

    After Belfry destroyed my Tomcats I knew the trophy was theirs to lose. Desales has a great team and were the favorite coming into the season, but Belfry has been firing on all cylinders lately. This was the championship game, imo.

    Amazing! One of the best games I've ever witnessed. Feel like I heard the Belfry lineman beg to go for two during the timeout Desales called in the 2nd overtime.

    Don’t be fooled by where he lands. The ruling was that he broke the plane on his initial surge and not after he got hit and fell backward short. It was close for sure though.

    The WYMT angle shows a different story. Both are inconclusive, but the WYMT lends itself that he was over and knocked back.

    From the WYMT video. The apex of the push. The essence of Friday Night Lights here.

    And a very tough, but apparently correct, call by the stripes. Give them credit here.

    It was a close call anyway you look at it. The play was called a TD, so let’s congratulate Belfry. Hopefully both teams meet up again next year at some point, or find a nice in between neutral site and play in the regular season.

    Any other comments from either side on the Officiating ?

    I saw the original video posted that shows the Belfry back go down, then stretch his arms out. At first I was under the impression that it was a bad call, then I saw the full play on WYMT and a fan made video on Twitter and it’s fairly clear that the player crossed the goal line and the line judge was signaling TD before the defense knocked the player back to the half yard line. A lot of the blame on bad officiating is based on a selectively cropped video being shared. Officials miss calls in every game but the one most in question in this game was called correctly.
