Calvary Baptist blasts Archbishop Hannan 62-7 in state title game
NEW ORLEANS - Paced by junior Orlando Bradford's four touchdowns, Calvary Baptist defeated Archbishop Hannan, 62-7 to capture the 2013 LHSAA Division III State Championship Thursday afternoon in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Capturing their first football state championship in school history, Calvary Baptist (9-4) scored on the second play from scrimmage on a 26-yard touchdown run by Bradford to grab a 6-0 lead.
The first of three first-half Bradford touchdowns would open up the floodgates for the Cavaliers as sophomore quarterback Shea Patterson would also throw for three touchdown passes and over 200 yards in the first half to give Calvary a 41-0 lead at the half.
The 62 points by Calvary tied the most-ever points in a state championship game.
