Summary:
      The 6A Championship game matched Daphne's defense against the high powered offense of Hoover. Lance Rhodes riddled the Trojan defense for 343 yards by completing 19 of 37 passes to lead the Bucs to a 28-7 victory and the 2000 6A state title. Rhodes three touchdown passes of 51, 10 and 50 yards and ran 4 yards for another score.

      The Hoover pass-oriented game plan worked to perfection as Rhodes hit Joey Chambers with a 51 yard screen pass over the middle for a touchdown only 58 seconds into the game. The Bucs came right back on their second possession and drove the ball 70 yards in 6 plays for another score and a 14-0 lead half way through the first quarter.

      The Trojans could not get untracked in the first half with six fumbles, two lost, including one at the Bucs 16 yard line in the first quarter. Lee baker put the Trojans on the scoreboard by returning the second half kickoff 91 yards for a touchdown. Hoover answered with two quick scores of their own when Rhodes threw touchdown passes of 31 yards to Danny Rumley and 51 yards to Chad Jackson.

      Lizenby would lead Daphne with 163 yards passing on 12 of 25 completions but was sacked four times by the Bucs defense. Lee Baker would also add 90 yards rushing on 12 carries for the Trojans.

      The game was the first championship game appearance for Daphne after never advancing past the second round in three previous trips. This was also Hoover's first journey to the title game since the school opened in 1994 replacing Berry, which had won two titles in 1977 and 1982.
