MASSILLON -- For the fifth time in the last six seasons, the Hoban Knights are state champions with a convincing 35-6 victory over Massillon on their home field in the Division II Final to finish off the season undefeated at 11-0.
Hoban senior QB Shane Hamm capped-off his impressive career with a 9-10 passing performance, finishing with 172 yards and four touchdowns through the air, adding a rushing TD to claim his third state title. The Knights defense was equally as superb, holding the Tigers to a season-low 32 rushing yards on 28 carries and just 136 yards overall for the game.
Massillon finishes their season as state runners-up for a third straight season, finishing the year at 10-2. The Tigers are 0-6 all-time in state championship games since the tournament era began in 1972.
