Charlottesville Va. -- Highland Springs last won a State Championship in football back in 1961 when they were named state champs. 54 years later, the Springers won the 5A State title with a 27-7 win over Stone Bridge from Loudoun County.

K'Von Wallace, who will play at Cincinnati next season, had two touchdown catches and Greg Dortch, who is headed to Wake Forest scored on a 66 yard touchdown run and had an interception that led to a D.J. Anderson touchdown run.

The Springers defense, which posted four straight shutouts and five total on the season, held a Stone Bridge offense to just 184 yards of total offense and seven points.  The Bulldogs had scored at least 35 points in their four previous playoff games.

Highland Springs use the word "Finish" all season as motivation and at Scott Stadium, the Springers "Finish" a historic season with a State Championship and a 14 game winning streak going into next season.
