Ohio State commit Parris Campbell went up against his toughest challenge yet this season on Thursday night but came away apart of his second straight state championship.
Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary defeated Trotwood-Madison 24-0 in the Division III state final in Ohio. Lead by Campbell, the Irish have won 20 games in a row.
"This is what I work for," said Campbell. "This is what my team works for. I'm very happy with the win and accomplishing our goals. This is what we have had our eyes set on the entire season and we went wire to wire for it."
Despite the 24 points on the board, the St. Vincent-St. Mary offense was contained for one of the few times this year. Campbell credited his opponent and gave them respect for their effort.
"They are definitely one of the better teams we have ever played," Campbell admitted. "I have to give credit to Trotwood-Madison. They gave us a game. Their defense was great. We kept pounding the ball and came out with the win and that's what matters."
"It's an unbelievable feeling to go 15-0 and win the state championship," he added. "I'm happy about this right now and it's what I wanted. I don't want anything else. I'm sad it's over but I'm going to be sure to enjoy it and live in the moment."
Campbell committed on the spot when offered by Ohio State back in the Spring and the time is approaching for him to sign with the Buckeyes.
"I love Ohio State and they always play hard," he mentioned. "They've had a terrific season. I'm going to take my official visit there in January. It will be around the 17th. Being back down there again will be exciting and I'm looking forward to it."
The four-star prospect also had his in-home visit on Sunday with the Ohio State assistant coaches.
