The road to state ended in a victory for the Panthers, and Parish Episcopal School now holds the title as the 2014 TAPPS Division II State Football Champions.
Our Panthers put up one of its best offensive games of the season in Saturday's TAPPS Division II title game, rolling up 670 yards in a 56-14 victory over Dallas Christian at Tiger Stadium.
Parish (13-1 overall) scored on its first five possessions, helping to turn a 14-14 first-quarter tie into a 34-14 halftime lead.
"This was how we wanted to end our season, and I couldn't be prouder of our team," said Parish Episcopal head coach Scott Nady. "The offense capitalized on our chances, and the defense made big plays as the game went on."
Parish Episcopal's offense used several big plays to help build its first-half lead, including a 62-yard scoring catch by Xavier Suggs and a 71-yard touchdown run by Dominic Williams.
Suggs, who also intercepted two passes, had nine catches for 145 yards while Williams rushed for a game-high 269 yards and four scores.
Williams added two touchdowns in the second half, with quarterback Tom Stewart (263 yards passing, three total touchdowns) adding a 1-yard score for Parish.
