NYSPHSAA Football Championship

Well, for the second time in as many years, we're heading to Exit 36 of the New York State Thruway.

We'll be in Syracuse on Black Friday, November 29th, as the Queensbury Spartans will try to do what their equals in 1997 and 1998 couldn't do - claim the state championships.

But Williamsville North is an interesting team.  First, you have to congratulate the Spartans of Section 6 for their success this year.  Especially considering the following:
  • Last year, the Spartans went 3-9
  • Entering the Section 6 title game, they were 6-3 and facing a team that has rattled off 69 straight wins against Section 6 opponents.  And ... oh, yeah, they were the runners-up to Burnt Hills last year.
  • They had never played in the NYSPHSAA Tournament prior to this year.  In fact, they had never played in the Section 6 Championship game prior to this year.
All those things make for a magical season.  But you'd have to admit the Queensbury Spartans are on a magical run of their own, beating last year's state champions twice.

And that's what will make an interesting matchup on Friday.  Can the Queensbury Spartans finally claim the first state title in football in the Tri-County?

Find out Friday beginning at 2:45PM on 1230 FOX Sports Radio.
