COLUMBIA, SC (WBTV)- The game was never in doubt as Northwestern would surge out to a 21-0 lead and would cruise to a 62-35 win to cap off an undefeated 15-0 season. The Trojans would claim the SC AAAA Division 2 State Championship in the process.
It was a historic day for the Air Raid offense starting with QB Mason Rudolph who threw for 483 yards and 8 TD. The 8 TD is a state title game record for South Carolina. He also had 38 completions which set a new state record as well. Rudolph also rushed for another TD. What a way to wrap up a career at Northwestern as he will be heading to Oklahoma State next year.
Another big contributor today was WR Dupree Hart. The junior tallied 23 catches for 255 yards and 4 TD. 195 of his 255 came in the first half and included 2 spectacular grabs that ignited the Trojans fans and team.
