For the second time in three years, the Newport Central Catholic Thoroughbreds are bringing home a Kentucky state football title. Tyler Lyon's touchdown catch with 26 seconds left sent New Cath to 30-26 win over Caldwell County.
"These kids put this on their goal sheet like every team, but they really wanted it and they were really hungry," said 'Breds coach Eddie Eviston. "This game sums up our season and I give a lot of credit to these kids."
New Cath quarterback Josh Cain was named MVP. He was 14-of-23 passing on the day for 243 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed five times for 32 yards.
"I did everything I could just to win. It means so much," Cain said.
Dylan Hayes was NewCath's top rusher, carrying 27 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns. Mac Franzen added four catches for 81 yards and a touchdown.
Lyon's game winning score was the culmination of a 60 yard drive that started after Caldwell County took the lead with 2:30 left. Said Lyon, "We faked the run and everyone bit up. We just hope we get it at the right spot at the right time and turned out it did."
