(CHATTANOOGA)  The MTCS Cougars played their first TSSAA BlueCross Bowl State Football Championship and defeated Friendship Christian 28 - 13. 

In the state championship game from Finley Stadium in Chattanooga,  Eli Wilson was named the MVP of this State Championship game. He had 17-carries for 197-yards and a touchdown. On defense, he returned a fumble forced by teammate Jaxon Highfill 28-yards for a score. 


It's the first team state championship won by MTCS in TSSAA sports. The school was established 50-years ago and has been playing football for the last 18-years. 

Congratulations to the Middle Tennessee Christian School Cougars on their victory over rival Friendship Christian from Lebanon.

The Oakland Patriots are vying for their fourth state championship in a row. WGNS will once again be back in Chattanooga this Saturday to bring you the game "LIVE." Tell your friends and family from out of town they can hear the game streaming here on as Bryan Barrett, Jon Dinkins and Rod Edwards take you to the game.

Last week, Oakland started strong and fought off a third quarter comeback to defeat Bradley Central 38-17 to advance to the 6A Blue Cross Bowl. The Pats led 17-3 at halftime, but the Bears roared back with two third quarter touchdowns to tie the game. But an interception with around eight minutes to play by Bradley Central set up Oakland's go ahead touchdown.

Mr. Football finalist Daune Morris had 31-carries for 171-yards and four touchdowns, three coming in the fourth quarter for the Patriots. Their defense held the Bears' Mr. Football finalist Boo Carter to just four yards receiving and 27-rushing. Craig Tutt, Bronson Crisp and Kyrie Gainor all had interceptions for the Oakland defense.
