Two plays later, Rideau streaked 48 yards to put the Bobcats on the board.
It was far from over, though, as the teams traded the lead seven times, the last coming when Jamison hit Rideau for the 20-yard TD pass in the final minute of the first half — a score set up by another Trojans turnover.
A shootout before the break, though, turned into a defensive struggle as the Bobcats kept Douglass’ powerful running tandem of Quinton Neil and Aliston Cobb in check.
Douglass had 246 yards rushing at halftime but just 23 after the break.
"We have great third quarters,” Star Spencer coach Darrell Hall said. "We’ve been doing that all season.”
"We just talked about tackling better,” Hall said. "Every time, we were getting our hands on them, we just weren’t bringing them down very well. I just asked them, ‘How do you want to be remembered? There’s only one champion. There’s only one No. 1.’ ”
And that No. 1 is Star Spencer.
The Bobcats have eight boys basketball championships. And now, Star is a football champion.
"This is the best thing that has ever happened to me,” Olds said. "Man, this is unbelievable. You couldn’t write a better script than this.”
