CLASS 4A, FRIDAY, 4 P.M.
ROCORI SPARTANS (10-2) vs. SMB WOLFPACK (12-0)
Jim says: Rocori looked fearless in its 48-24 victory over Winona in the semifinals. It will need that to stay with SMB, which gives opposing coaches sleepless nights with its skills. Whatever the opponent has, the uber-talented Wolfpack do them one better. SMB simply has too much.
SMB 40, Rocori 21
David says: The chief SMB weapon is quarterback/safety Jalen Suggs, always the best athlete on the field. He produced 322 yards of offense — five shy of the team total — plus three touchdowns and two interceptions in the semifinal against Hutchinson. Rocori must continue to run the ball well, sustain drives and shorten the game.
