LISTEN: Thompson head coach Mark Freeman recaps one of the craziest endings to a football game you’ve ever heard of and how they won their 2nd Blue Map Trophy in 2 years!

If you haven’t heard about the ending to the Alabama 7a State Championship yet, you may have just emerged from beneath a rock. Auburn High School just about had their Blue Map Trophy loaded on the bus when they were up by 9 with 30 second to go in the game. And then? Chaos. It took a blocked punt returned for a touchdown, a recovered onside kick, 2 defensive pass interference penalties and a 35 yard field goal for Thompson to come away win a one point win and their second state championship in 2 years. Hear about it all below with head coach Mark Freeman!
