Dillon Notes

The Wildcats defense has not given up more than 16 points in any game this year. Damu Ford is the only Wildcat with over 100 tackles, and the unit has no big numbers when it comes to sacks and interceptions yet it is the most dominant defense in the Zone Nation.

Jackie Hayes is coaching his 7th state championship game, he is 2-4 in title games, winning it all in 2008 and 2009. Dillon is back in the state championship game for the first time since 2010, when it lost to Central at Williams-Brice Stadium
