It will be Thompson’s third straight state championship game appearance.

Thompson 21, Hoover 0 | 11:54 2Q | Jarrett Crockett bulls his way in on a 4-yard touchdown run for the Warriors. All Thompson. Hoover will not make excuses but they are not playing with a full team. At least 7 to 9 starters out.@JarrettCrockett pic.twitter.com/bHNeH0hzog— Alabama7AFootball (@AL7AFootball) November 21, 2020
Thompson is now 13-0, while Hoover finishes 11-2.
