The Prattville defense rattled Hoover quarterback Ross Wilson most of the night. Wilson did take a vicious hit on one scramble and sat out the next two series. The Lions came to Birmingham on a mission, and coach Bill Clark had his team focused and ready to play.
"We had a couple missed assignments on some of our blitzes that resulted in big plays that they scored on," Gentry said. "Besides that our defense did a heck of a job. It's a very young defense, and I look forward to seeing them in this game next year. They will probably win it again."
"It feels great to win the state championship, and now I have to go win a national championship in college."
Gentry kept a low profile througout the season as his focus was directed on a state championship. The Tide verbal commitment is paying close attention to the events in Tuscaloosa.
"I have talked to a few of the coaches," he said. "Right now I am a soft verbal commitment. I am still looking around. I don't know if that is where I want to play especially with the coaching change."
Gentry recorded 1.5 sacks in the Class 6A state championship game. He finished his senior season with 16 sacks and 54 tackles.
