CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — In the final game of the night on Friday, Southeast Polk faced Valley in the Class 5A state championship game at the UNI-Dome.
Southeast Polk was in control from start to finish and handily defeated Valley 49-14. Senior running back Abu Sama ran for 372 yards and six touchdowns in the game. He now owns the record for most touchdowns by an individual in an Iowa high school state championship game and the most rushing yards.
"As a team, me getting it with my boys is just different," said Sama. "It feels different. So, all the work that we've been doing finally paid off and that's all I can ask for."
The Rams have now won back-to-back Class 5A state championships.
