Coaches: Ben Harris, Blount and Don Cox, Russellville
Game: Played Friday December 11, 1992 at Ladd Stadium, Mobile
              Blount took advantage of turnovers to score a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns to win its second consecutive 5A state championship. The game was tied 8-8 at the half and 15-15 after the third quarter, but the final stanza belonged to the Leopards. Darnell Hawkins intercepted a pass at the Russellville 29 yard line and then put the Leopards ahead to stay with a 10 yard touchdown run with 9:20 remaining.
              On Russellville's very next possession and the first play after the kickoff, Shane James picked a fumble out of the air and ran 67 yards for another Blount touchdown and the game was over. Dameyune Craig rushed 12 times for 65 yards and completed 6 of 11 for another 130 yards passing.
              This was Russellville's fourth trip to the championship game having won titles in 1967-68 and losing one to Greenville in 1987. Blount won its second championship in three years.
