Blessed Trinity High School is celebrating its second straight Georgia Class 4A state championship. The Titans beat previously unbeaten Cartersville Wednesday night at Mercedes Benz Stadium.
This one was close heading into the fourth quarter with BT leading 7-6. A bad snap on a punt from its own end zone hurt Cartersville. The ball squirted out of the end zone to give Blessed Trinity a 9-6 lead. The Titans then took the free kick and converted it into a touchdown with Jake Smith connecting with Ryan Davis on a 54-yard touchdown pass.
Smith completed 10 of 18 passes for 156 yards, plus ran for 21 yards. Steele Chambers, an Ohio State verbal recruit, ran the ball 22 times for 98 yards. Davis caught seven passes for 135 yards.
Blessed Trinity finishes with a 15-0 record and will bring a 20-game win streak into the 2019 season.
