The Warren County Ravens have won the Mississippi Youth Bowl Championship.
On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Ravens played the Canton Jaguars in Jackson, Miss., and secured a 13-0 win.
Quarterback Cameron Zellous scored both touchdowns for the Ravens, including a 35-yard run on the opening drive. Running back Jordan Taylor secured the extra points that helped put the Ravens ahead in the game.
The Warren County Ravens consist of 8-year-old boys from around the county.
“We traveled to Starkville to Hollondale to play all around the state, and we only gave up a total of 6 points in 17 games,” said head coach Decorey Knight.
Knight mentioned that this season wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the other Ravens coaches including Vance Gray, Troy Rogers and Jeremy Judge.
“We turned around a team that didn’t win a single game two years ago,” Knight said.
Overall, the Ravens have won three championship games this year, and they finished with a perfect record of 17-0 on the season.See a typo? Report it here.
