It's an early morning 10 AM kickoff for Oxbridge Academy at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, as the Thunderwolves look for the 11th straight win, and a State Championship to go along with it. They're also looking for some revenge, as they take on the very same Chaminade-Madonna team that knocked them out of the regional final last year.

"Everybody has the score of last year's game against Chaminade, like 26-13, everybody has that on their screensaver," says Oxbridge Academy quarterback Gio Richardson. "(We're) definitely determined to play Chaminade."

"(Chaminade-Madonna is) definitely a great team," says Oxbridge Academy head coach Brendan Kent. "They have great players of offense, they're explosive on defense."

While Chaminade-Madonna have outscored they're playoff opponents by 140 points, the Thunderwolves, in similar fashion, have won the past games by a combined score of 115-14.

"We're definitely confident," says Richardson. "We've just got to not make mistakes at all. We've got to run the ball well, I've got to make my throws, and I know the defense is going to hold up."

"(Winning a State Title) has been on our minds since (day one of practice)," says Thunderwolves receiver De'John King. " All of us are ready, We're pumped."
