INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — With a thrilling final drive capped off with a successful 2-point conversion, Lafayette Central Catholic has won the IHSAA Class A State Football Championship. It was the Knights' eighth win in eight appearances in the state finals. 

Trailing 28 to 21 with minutes left in the game, quarterback Clark Barrett led the Knights down the field that set up a Ky Schrader touchdown with 10 seconds to go. The drive was capped off with a "win-or-go" 2-point pass from Barrett to wide receiver Reece Buche

"There was no doubt in my mind that is what we were going to do," said head coach Brian Nay after the game. "It's a 2-point play we ran earlier in the season. If you watched the play Clemson beat Alabama on in the national championship, same play."

Senior linebacker Kyle Onken was selected as the Class A IHSAA Mental Attitude Award winner.
