The Stamford Bulldogs were able to rally from a 28-7 second half deficit to bring home their second straight state championship.

The Comanches went into halftime with a 21-7 lead, then Shiner grabbed even more momentum with by recovering the kick-off after it bounced off a Stamford player. Shiner would then march down the field and punch it in for six on a reverse to Dadrian Taylor.

Then the Bulldogs went to work.

First quarterback Bo Wimberly found the endzone with his feet to cut the Shiner lead down to 28-14. A short time later Wimberly would find the endzone again, but this time from 40-yards out to get Stamford within seven points.

A big stop by the Stamford defense on fourth down would once again put the Bulldog offense on the field, and this time they would waste little time finding the endzone.

On the first play from scrimmage, Wimberly would hook up with James Washington on a 60-yard touchdown pass to tie the game at 28 all.

The Bulldogs' defense would once again come up with a big play on the ensuing Shiner drive, but this time it would come in the form of a turnover. Stamford was able to force the ball out of Coleman's hands and recover to set up their offense with good field position once again.

From there Wimberly would do the rest. The senior quarterback would once again find the endzone to give the Bulldogs a 34-28 lead with under two minutes remaining in the game.

That would force the Comanches into passing situations, and eventually into a pick by Washington.

Despite the urging of some of his teammates and coaches to get down, the speedster returned it around eighty yards for a touchdown. That score would put Stamford on top by the count of 41-28, and help secure the Bulldogs second straight state title.
