King's Academy looking to cap off a 'magical' season with a state championship on Saturday
Orlando (CBS12) —
The most magical place on earth to many is Disney World, but nothing will compare to the type of magic the King’s Academy football team will create in Orlando on Saturday if they’re able to pull off the team's first ever state championship.
"We're just going to keep going with the magic I guess," says Lions wide receiver Drew Luchey. "It's something special this team has, the senior class, and we're working to get that state ring."
King’s Academy head coach Keith Allen admits there’s definitely some extra magic going on with the Lions this season. Three of the last four games have been huge comeback wins at the last second on big plays. Most of those plays were triggered by recent CBS12 Athlete of the Week, senior quarterback, Justin Wake
"We're huge underdogs," says Wake. "We know they're a great football team, but we're excited and kind of feel like we're destined in a way."
The Lions will have to take control of tomorrow’s State Championship game early if they want a chance at beating defending State Champions Chaminade Madonna.
"We've got to play near perfection," says Allen. "We're not playing Chaminade, we're playing perfection. If we do all the little things right, that's going to give us an opportunity and put us in a position to win the game."
The Lions will have the adrenaline going early tomorrow morninggame time is 10 AM in Orlando.
