Class 3A state champion Chaminade defeated reigning Class 2A champion Champagnat Catholic, 27-14, Friday behind a powerhouse performance by Thad Franklin.

Franklin, a University of Miami commit, rushed for 164 yards on 28 carries and scored all four touchdowns, leading Chaminade to the win.

Aside from Franklin, Chaminade was meek on offense. In its other 19 plays, it gained 23 yards.

“If that’s what it comes down to, then that’s what it is and I’ll do whatever it takes,” Franklin told the Miami Herald. “Honestly, it just felt good to get out there and play. Yeah, I’m pretty tired and a little sore, for sure.”
