TRUMBULL — It may be written for it has been done: The Sheehan Titans are a state football champion for the first time since 1985.
The Titans not only took down undefeated reigning champion Bloomfield, they blew the Warhawks away with 36 straight points over the final 16 minutes of the game, turning a 33-28 deficit into a 64-33 victory.
Quarterback Kyle Simmons ran for three touchdowns and threw three TD passes to Jordan Davis, including an 80-yard fade that put Sheehan ahead for good a mere 11 seconds after Bloomfield had taken that 33-28 lead with 4:21 left in the third quarter.
In all, Davis had four TDs. He ran for a 7-yard score to help Sheehan dig itself out of an early 14-0 deficit.
Terrence Bogan added two touchdown runs, both in the fourth quarter.
In that final frame, Sheehan twice stopped Bloomfield on downs and also got an interception and 63-yard return by Michael Lemay that led to one of Bogan’s TD runs.
All three defensive plays in that fourth quarter led to touchdowns and the steady march to a long awaited state title for the Burgundy and Gold.
