Forrest Co. AHS Eyes 4A State Championship for First Time - WHLT 22 Connecting the Pine Belt

Forrest Co. AHS Eyes 4A State Championship for First Time

Posted: Updated:

Forrest County Agricultural High School looks to make history for the second week in a row come Saturday.

One week after making its first ever appearance in South State, Forrest Co. AHS eyes the 4A state title.

10-5 Lafayette stands in the way. After starting just 3-5, the Commodores have ripped off seven wins in a row.

The 12-2 Aggies also come in riding a seven-game win streak.

Their last victory came against Quitman - a team that handed the Aggies their second loss of the season back in October.

Forrest Co. AHS head football coach Larry Dolan says it is going to take that kind of resilience to win a game of this magnitude.

"It will take that because this is a big league battle, and both teams are going to have to have their moments and we're just going to bounce back when we have a down play and hopefully we can do that," says Dolan. "We've had seven or eight games that have come down to the last minute of the game and we're used to being in close games, so hopefully we get up there and play our best. That's all we can ask is go all out, lay it on the line and do our best."

Fortunately for the 14th-year head man, his seniors seem ready to lead the way.

"I'm looking for a dog fight - 48 minutes, a war - but hopefully we come out on top," says Forrest Co. AHS senior running back Dontavian Lee.

"We're ready," says Forrest Co. AHS senior linebacker and defensive lineman Logan Hill. "We just know that we've got to get serious. They're a good team, and we only know one mission on our hands and that's just come home with a ring."

"Let's get it," says Lee.
