J.H. Rose lost in the second round of the state playoffs Friday night to Hillside. The 42-30 loss to the hornets marks the first time Rose has been eliminated from the playoffs since 2002. It was a streak that started during the 2003 football season.
J.H. Rose would go on to Capture their first state title since the 70s. The Rampants would add to their trophy case picking up state titles after the 04,05 and 06 seasons.
Boasting talented players like NC State's Andre Brown and ECU's Jonathan Williams, Rose would build up a 39-game winning streak. That streak ended earlier this season to Rocky Mount
