WR Jaylen Bradshaw and the Tigers will face Centreville for the title on Saturday at the University of Virginia. The two teams met for a state title back in 2011, with Oscar Smith coming out on top.

– Brunswick (Lawrenceville, VA), which features Tech-bound TE/DL Xavier Burke, downed Buckingham County, 27-0, to reach the Class 2A state championship. The Bulldogs meet undefeated Giles in the title contest on Saturday.

– Playing center, which is the position he played the final three games of the season, Billy Ray Mitchell helped Paramus Catholic (Paramus, N.J.) to a 13-6 win over St. Peter’s Prep in the Non0-Public Group 4 state championship. This is the second straight state title win for the Paladins.

Mitchell earned all-county honors for his performance this season, which included time at right tackle, guard, and center.

– A touchdown late by senior tailback Earl Hughes in the 4th gave L.C. Bird (Chesterfield, VA) a 7-3 win over Salem. DB/WR Shawn Payne and the Skyhawks will compete for the 5A state championship on Saturday against Trace McSorley and Briar Woods. Bird is seeking its second consecutive state championship.

Kickoff is 12:07 pm at UVa’s Scott Stadium.
