Wilson shines

Lincoln Christian senior Roman Wilson has been one of the best wide receivers in the state the last two years.

He showed what a versatile talent he can be with a 70-yard punt return for a touchdown in the second quarter to make it 21-0.

"I saw the ball bouncing and picked up and thought I could split the defenders," Wilson said. "I had a great block. I wasn't sure if I stayed in bounds, but I kept running."

Wilson also had a game-high eight catches for 120 yards and kicked all the extra points for the Bulldogs.

Bulldogs finish dominant season

With the throwing of Cale Grauer, the rushing of Matt Lawwill and Wilson, the defense for Lincoln Christian sometimes got overlooked.

But the Saturday's win marks Lincoln Christian's seventh shutout this season.

"The defense has been strong all season," Wilson said. "We knew we had some unfinished business from last year. This is everything I thought it would be."

Grauer rushed for a touchdown and threw for 207 yards while Lawwill rushed for 182 yards and two scores.

Lincoln Christian's lone loss came in Week 2 to Shiloh Christian, an Arkansas powerhouse.
