“You know we went in at halftime and had a conversation with the guys- you have to finish. You know the first time we played them, we didn’t play four quarters.

“It feels real good to know that we put in hard work all season to get back where we was and we came that close to losing so it feels real good to be back in the state championship game,” said Spartans wide receiver Christian Lewis.
