With 37 seconds remaining, WAKE FOREST’S COUGARS stopped Zebulon B. Vance High School quarterback Nigel Summerville in his own end zone, forcing a safety. Those were all the points Wake Forest needed to secure its 45th straight win and its third-straight 4AA title. The final score was 9-7.
“My hat goes off to this group of seniors,” says Wake Forest Head Coach Reggie Lucas. “They’ve been battled tested. We had a couple of close games that prepared us. What a way to finish!”
