Parkview Baptist Claims 3A Title
While the first quarter made it seem as though this game would be decided by defense, it didn't take long for Parkview Baptist to put the pedal to the metal and not look back. After the first quarter, Parkview scored 42 unanswered points. Senior Hezekiah Randolph got things going for the eagles with two consecutive second-quarter touchdowns. Randolph finished the game with 87 yards on the ground to go along with his two touchdowns.
The first score came on a 17-yard run by Randolph and he followed that up with a one-yard run for a touchdown with 3:51 to go in the half. This was only the beginning of an offensive outburst for Parkview.
Senior Brennan Bozeman took over the task of scoring from Randolph with 35 seconds remaining in the half. Bozeman connected with Seth Shah on a 31-yard touchdown pass, the first of four touchdowns that Bozeman would be a part of in the game.
Once Bozeman got the ball in his hands in the second half, it was too late for Notre Dame. Bozeman added two more touchdowns in the third quarter on runs of one and three yards, respectively. The second touchdown came with just over three minutes remaining in the third quarter.
Bozeman added another touchdown with 1:56 to go in the fourth quarter on a 15-yard run in a fourth down situation. An even bigger key to the final drive by Parkview was how much time they ate up in the process of scoring. Their final drive lasted 11:26 and went for 18 plays before Bozeman capped it off with the touchdown scramble.
Deservingly, Bozeman received the MVP award for State Champion Parkview Baptist. Bozeman finished the game with 73 yards on the ground and another 95 through the air, in addition to his four total touchdowns.
In terms of overall offensive statistics, the game was even more lopsided than the score dictated. Parkview outgained Notre Dame 416 yards to 162 yards in the game.
