Fairly early in the first quarter
Owen King on his 17th birthday leads Caledonia to
it's second dominating performance
in the state championship
game in as many years.
E-V-W chose to try to shut down the run.
so King throws for over 300 yards and 5 touchdowns
in the first half.
Just another day for Owen I would say.
It's pretty easy to do what we do when we have him
making the throws like that.
Offensive line gave me great time all day, I was clean
back there pretty much the whole time.
I was able to make throws that I expect myself to
make and these guys made the plays for me.
Caledonia now with seven state titles since 2007.
Coach Fruechte's only loss in a state championship
game came in 2005 to Eden Valley-Watkins.
So does 2016 make up for that?
Just a little, just a little.
I felt that we and when I say we I mean coaches and
I, we left that one down.
Learned a lot from it, learned a lot.
I was telling Adam Tri before the game that it taught
me a lot.
Some lesson he learned in that loss 11-years back.
This Caledonia football program a dynasty ever since.
Back to Owen King.
his numbers in two championship games.
535 passing yards.
And he's commited to playing D-1 basketball at South
and he re-affirmed today basketball is stil his sport
