GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - The Parrott Academy football team scored 40 unanswered points to rally past John Paul II, 40-13, and win the NCISAA 8-man football title Saturday night in Greenville.

“This is very special, very special because these guys faced a lot of obstacles this year,” said APA head coach Matt Beaman. “We lost last year in the state championship. Got stopped on the one-yard line. They bought into the weight program. Gave me everything they had from that point on, and I felt like they earned it. Their last five football games were as good as I’ve ever seen a Parrott football team play.”
