Colleton Prep Warhawks football team will be playing for the state championship this Saturday at Charleston Southern University football stadium against Williamsburg Academy from Kingstree. Williamsburg will enter the game with a perfect record of 13-0. They have scored 436 points this year, while allowing only 116 points. Williamsburg reached the finals by defeating Bethesda 38-8 last week. The Warhawks reached the finals by defeating Beaufort Academy 23-20 last week.

Warhawk Head Football Coach Greg Langdale said, “Williamsburg is very good. They are undefeated for a reason. They are very well coached and they play hard. We have to get to work this week and have a very good week of practice.

“Our guys are excited to be in the state championship, but they are not satisfied with just getting there. They want to win state. Hopefully it will be a good, exciting ball game,” continued Langdale.

Kick-off is set for 3:30 p.m. at Charleston Southern Buccaneer Stadium.
