Warren Central edges Carmel to claim 6A title
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jayson West continues to find ways to win.
The Warren Central head coach watched his team’s offense get stopped possession after possession on Saturday, the Warriors unable to find a groove. They were saved when quarterback Jeff George connected with Zachary Gegner on an 18-yard pass for the go-ahead score with 18 seconds left in the third quarter.
Mykelti Williams picked off Carmel quarterback Isaac James with 3:12 remaining in the fourth, giving the Warriors a 7-6 victory in the Indiana Class 6A state championship game.
West is now the first coach to win back-to-back state titles with two separate schools. Last season, West coached the Class 5A state champion Lawrence Central Bears.
