EDMOND — Holland Hall quarterback Wallace Clark saved the best performance of his football career for his final game Friday night.
Clark accounted for 398 yards and five touchdowns to help lead the Dutch past defending champion Lincoln Christian 35-7 in the Class 3A state final before an estimated 2,850 fans at Wantland Stadium.
Holland Hall (12-0), which entered the game ranked No. 2, won its first state title in its five years as an OSSAA member. The Dutch opened 2020 on Sept. 4 with a 49-0 victory over rival Cascia Hall and were on their way to a perfect season that included two games canceled by opponents’ COVID issues. The Dutch’s smallest winning margin was 24 points.
“We didn’t know what we would have with regard to a season,” Dutch coach Tag Gross said. “Before the Cascia game, we told our guys, ‘Let’s enjoy this one. It may be the only one we get.’ We’re just so appreciative to have had this season and now this moment.”
