Bulldawgs are State Champs Again

There is never one single play that determines a State Championship. But there is one play from Saturday's 5A Title game that certainly stands out. Jalen Bishop slipped through the line and blocked the extra point. It would have tied the game, instead it made the Bulldawgs State Champions. The 50th meeting between Bulldawgs and Trojans could not have had a more storybook ending as Las Cruces gutted out at 27-26 win.

After coming out of halftime tied at 20, Las Cruces took their first lead of the game in the 3rd quarter off a short touchdown run by Senior RB JJ Granados, who had 280 total yards and 2 touchdowns, to give the Bulldawgs a 27-20 edge.

Mayfield would answer with 90 second left in the game on the legs of David Stookey. But on the PAT it was Bishop's outstretched arm blocking the attempt and sealing a back-to-back Championship for the Bulldawgs.

"I just came from the outside. I've been doing that all season. I just knew I had to get off and get that block to win the game," said Bishop.

 "It was the game winner. We work on that every day, every week in practice. He's the guy that gets through there and get's it done. Phenomenal, it won the game for us," said Las Cruces head coach Jim Miller.

When asked where this win ranks in his career, Miller did not hessitate with an answer.

"It might be the tops with my son and this team, it might be the tops."

Mayfield seemed like they were on their way to a big win after turning two Kameron Miller interceptions into touchdowns; one a short run by Phillip Ealy, the second a pick-6 by Isaiah Lerman for a 14-0 Trojan first quarter lead.

Allen Garcia's 31 yard field goal in the second quarter put Las Cruces on the board. Granados had the Bulldawg's first touchdown of the game on a 50 yard scamper in the second quarter to pull Las Cruces within 4.

Quarterback Kavika Johnson put Mayfield back up by 10 with a short TD run but the Trojans would miss the PAT attempt.

The Bulldawgs would put together 10 unanswered points to finish the half and even the score at halftime before the dramatic finish.

"It wasn't one point. You win some, you lose some. I'm proud of these kids. Everyone is proud of both teams for doing what they did," said Mayfield head coach Michael Bradley.

The numbers are starting to pile up for the Las Cruces Bulldawgs. This is their 8th State Championship, the sixth for Jim Miller and the Bulldawgs are barking back-to-back years.
