Outlook: The Lions, aiming for their first state title since 1974, face the toughest opponent in the state tournament and they know something about Wise. The Pumas defeated them, 55-6, in last year's championship game. Parrish, a former Lions player, has Wise riding a 26-game win streak and ranked No. 2 in the state poll behind No. 1 DeMatha. After losing their top running back, sophomore Devin Dawkins (1,833 yards, 22 touchdowns) to a broken collarbone last week, the Lions will look to juniors DJ Howard and Robert Agbai to pick up the slack. They also have a solid passing game led by junior quarterback Robby Porter (1,434 yards, 16 touchdowns) and a defense that harasses opposing quarterbacks. Senior defensive back Bryson Craven has seven interceptions and senior defensive ends Muddy McHemba and Dimeji Olayinka have combined for 26 sacks. Wise does a little of everything as well, and Strunk said after playing the Pumas last fall that they were the best blocking and tackling high school team he had ever seen. Senior quarterback Jabari Lewis (1,980 yards passing, 566 yards rushing, 42 total touchdowns) and junior running back John Oliver (1,167 yards, 18 touchdowns) lead the Pumas, who are going for their third state title in five years.
