Searcy forced three Benton turnovers last Saturday night in a 28-27 win at War Memorial Stadium to win the Class 6A state championship. It's the school's first state title of the modern playoff era (started in 1970), and the second in school history (1933). Senior quarterback Bryce Dixon earned title game MVP honors, passing for 341 yards and two touchdowns. Senior Damien Young ran for 75 yards and two scores and junior Marlon Crockett collected six passes for 141 yards and a TD. Benton lost its second consecutive title game after rallying from an 0-3 non-conference run. Searcy stopped a Benton two-point conversion with 2:04 in regulation, and knocked down a Benton Hail Mary on the game's final play to earn the title.

LAST WEEK last week missed Class 6A championship game. For the season, correctly picked 91 out of 112 games (82 percent) of games involving Class 6A teams.
