Warren De La Salle is back in the finals hoping to capture its second state championship in three seasons. The Pilots defeated Mona Shores 29-16 in the 2018 division 2 state championship and 44-8 in the 2014 title game.

Below, I’ll get into the top prospects for each team, keys to the game, and my prediction.
