Photos: Columbia wins first Mississippi high school football state championship since 1982

HATTIESBURG – Senior Kentrell Jackson scored on an 81-yard fumble recovery and Omar Johnson added the game-winning two-point conversion to lift Columbia to a thrilling 22-21 victory Senatobia in the MHSAA Class 4A football state championship game at M.M. Roberts Stadium. 

Columbia (14-1) won its second state championship, but the first since 1982. Senatobia finished 12-3.

“It starts in offseason,” said Columbia head coach Chip Bilderback. “This is what you prepare for. You put them in tough situations in the offseason, so that when your back’s against the wall, you keep fighting, and you hope your players learn that in the offseason.”
