The community is welcomed to attend the Drexel Football Team Championship Parade today at 4pm on main street in Drexel.

The Bobcats finished a undefeated season last night (13-0) after defeating the Worth County Tigers 48-42 in a epic 8-Man Championship football game held at Faurot Field at Memorial Stadium in Columbia.

Drexel Junior QB Jacob Coffey finished the game with 180 rushing yards on 31 carries and four touchdowns on the ground. Coffey also added 156 yards passing and 2 scores through the air to set the pace for the Drexel offense.

Drexel Senior Cory Cumpton added 93 yards receiving and two touchdowns for the Bobcats. Ethan Dayringer led the Drexel defensive effort with 12 tackles and a pair of pass breakups.

The play of the game was made by Senior Cory Cumpton as Worth County was driving late in the 4th quarter he came up with a interception at the 2 yard line of Drexel with 22 seconds left to seal the deal for the Bobcats.

Mid America Live News would like to congratulate the Drexel Bobcats on the first state title in school history.
