Clayton Wins 1st Ever State Title

Clayton 28, Hatch 6
The Clayton Yellowjackets defeated the Hatch Bears Saturday to win their first ever high school football state championship. The Yellowjackets finished the year 12-1 on the season.

Dakota Montoya, #63 for the Jackets told NMPreps, "This win feels so good and we finally won the state championship. This has been a very long season with a lot of hard work and our hard work has finally paid off. It was difficult playing in the snow and it was very cold, but it was totally worth it. We have finally made history and ended the Clayton's state title losing streak." He also said this about the Bears, "Hatch was a very good team, gave us a good game, hats off to them."

Allen Hass, #50 told NMPreps, "I'm still in disbelief, it hasn't hit me yet that we won. Our fingers were really cold, other than that it was a very good game. I played to the best of my ability today and all season."

Nick Wiseman, #4, Running Back and Defensive End told NMPreps, "I'm really sore, I feel great of course, but I'm still cold. I made one TD in the first quarter. Hatch was a very good team, but we were more focused, diciplined, and played our hearts out."

Brian Montoya, #28, Running Back and Linebacker who made two touchdowns for the Jackets and two 2 point conversions told NMPreps, "The win hasn't quite kicked in, but this was a pretty amazing experience. This is the 1st state title in Clayton's history. I did this all for my family, my family members (former Jackets) were 0-9 in state titles. My dad, uncles, cousins, have all played for the Jackets. I did it for them and especially my Dad, Charles Montoya who played for the Jackets in 1979." I came to Clayton my sophomore year and we moved down here for my family and Yellow Jacket Pride, my Dad had preveiously worked in Afghanistan and it was time to come home."

Koy Geary, #34 who made one TD for the Jackets said, "Our team did everything right and this win feels great."
