2A Division I State Championship Preview: New Deal Lions vs. Mason Punchers

AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - The New Deal Lions have made a clean sweep of their competition up to this point but so has their opponent the Mason Punchers but the keys to this game for the Lions this Thursday will be their defense and big play ability.

Despite the 49 points they surrendered to Panhandle early in the playoffs, the Lions have only allowed 18 points in their last four playoff games and their offense has been fueled by huge plays sparked by QB Jett Whitfield on the ground and through the air along with DK Blaylock lined up at receiver. Mason will definitely have their hands full trying to contain this New Deal team but the Punchers will be putting up a fight as they try to cap off an undefeated season as well.
