First Baptist wins 2A SCISA state championship

COLUMBIA, S.C. – It was a crazy road to Columbia for Johnny Waters, head coach of the First Baptist High School football team.

The hurricanes endured an 0-10 season three years ago, made the playoffs for the first ever last year, and then won their first ever region championship this season.

A state championship wasn’t supposed to come so quick, but it did.

First Baptist knocked off Lee Academy 28-21, rallying back in the third quarter to take the lead and then holding off the Cavaliers to pick up their first ever state title.
