History will be made on Friday in the Division 8 state championship as Centreville and Ubly hope to take the trophy home for the first time in either school's history. Ubly has been close several times, falling in the state championship in 08' and the semis in 03', 06', 08', 09', 16' and 19'. Friday will be the first time Centreville will play in a state championship game.

Both Centreville and Ubly made their way to Ford Field behind high-powered run offenses. Centreville tends to break out pass plays when the defense is least expecting, while Ubly has made a living on the ground, rushing for over 300 yards a game. Below, I'll get into the top prospects for each team, keys to the game, and my prediction.
