This past Friday night turned into quite an eventful evening for PCHS to say the least. The victory over the Sequoyah Chiefs clinched the District Championship for the Wildcats, their fourth in a row, The win was the 100th during Derrick Davis’ tenure as Head Coach, Lindsey Rogers was crowned Homecoming Queen, and Zach Miller set some modern day rushing records for the ‘cats and area teams.


The fireworks started quickly in the game with two touchdowns and an extra point being scored in the first 1 minute and 1 second of the game. Polk fumbled the opening kickoff and the Chiefs recovered and scored from the Polk 44 on the first offensive play, kicked the PAT and had a 7-0 lead with 49 seconds gone from the clock. After the kickoff Polk started at their own 36 with Zach Miller bursting through the line and racing the remaining 64 yards for a Wildcat TD. They failed to convert the attempt for a two-point conversion and the score stood at 7-6 with 10:59 left in the first quarter.


On the next Sequoyah series Carter Flowers sacked the QB for a two yard loss and Miller intercepted a pass giving Polk the ball at the 46 but they were forced to punt. Polk held and took over again at their own 38. A Chiefs’ penalty for an invalid fair catch allowed Polk to keep the ball and Miller scored his second TD from 39 yards out, caught a pass from Josh Sillas for the two point conversion, and Polk led 14-7. Polk upped their lead to 21-7 midway through the second quarter on a Sillas to Aaron Caldwell pass for the TD and Justin Brown’s PAT kick. After the KO, Sequoyah scored on a QB keeper, converted the PAT, and the half ended at 21-14, Polk’s favor.


Sequoyah got the ball to start the second half but Polk’s Brown intercepted a pass on the first play for a Polk turnover as Matthew Hammons pressured the Chiefs’ QB to force the bad pass. The teams swapped offensive possessions with no scores but Miller scored his third TD on a 59 yard run on Polk’s second possession. The PAT attempt was wide and Polk led 27-14. Miller scored his 4th TD after a Sequoyah scored and the third quarter ended with Polk holding a 33-21 lead. Miller’s TD jaunt came from 38 yards out and he broke 4 tackles on his way to the end zone.


Polk controlled the ball during the 4th quarter, running 22 offensive plays to Sequoyah’s 3 plays. Polk scored on a Miller plunge from the 4 yard line to up the score to 41-21 after Sillas completed a pass to Tristan Cheatham for the two point conversion. Polk then recovered the ensuing onside kick at the Sequoyah 42 yard line. Polk ran the ball at the middle of the defense and Miller scored the games final TD on their 8th play of the series from the one yard line. Polk stymied Sequoyah’s 4th  quarter offense twice on pass interceptions by Caldwell and Blake Cross.


Polk ruled possession of the ball for the game with 72 offensive plays to 34 attempts for Sequoyah. Each team lost two fumbles and Polk intercepted five passes to the Chief’s one pick off. Miller led the Polk offense with 44 carries for 411 yards and six TDs. He also had a two-point conversion and an interception. Miller had 997 yards rushing coming into the game and finished with 1408 total for the year to-date with two games left in the regular season.
