“We’ve got one more game to get to where we want to go, and that game is at our house, in front of the best fans in the state,” Chambless said in the postgame huddle.
Upon hearing those words, the Green Wave erupted in cheers, knowing their road to play for a second straight state championship has just one more stop.
And more importantly, that road goes straight through West Point.
