Summary:
      
The Southern Choctaw Indians, behind the leadership of senior quarterback Gary Banks, won the 2A state championship over Lineville 27-7. Banks is a two time MVP of the championship game as he also won the award last year in a winning effort. All he did was rush for 144 yards, complete 5 of 9 passes for another 42 yards and intercept a pass. 

       The game remained close after halftime at 13-7 until Banks would score a couple of touchdowns on runs of 32 and 45 yards to put the game out of reach. The loss marked the third in four years for Lineville in the title game but the Aggies did set a school record with 14 wins in a season. Lineville turned the ball over five times to take away any chance the Aggies had of winning the game.
