Centennial has finally achieved its biggest goal in its football season for the first time in 25 years. They are the 2023-2024 4A Nevada State Champions! Our Bulldogs took on the Sunrise Mountain Miners in a 49-31 victory.
The first half was close as our Bulldogs had a 21-12 lead going into halftime with one touchdown pass from senior quarterback Victor Plotnikov and two rushing touchdowns from sophomore Brogan Church. To finish the game, Centennial scored another four touchdowns to beat the Sunrise Mountain Miners 49-31.
Senior Quarterback Victor Plotnikov threw for 196 yards and 2 touchdowns with a 69.2% completion rate along with 26 passes and an outstanding 100.8 QB Rate while also running the ball six times for 25 yards and a touchdown. This game’s stats are impressive and they only add to the already impressive 2,000 passing yards and 32 touchdowns that Plotnikov has accumulated in the regular season. With these numbers, Plotnikov could be in contention for the title of Nevada Offensive Player of the Year.
Sophomore Brogan Church ran the ball 10 times for 49 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. In the regular season, Church rushed for 122 yards on 24 carries and scored 4 touchdowns. He also caught 5 passes for 23 yards and a touchdown.
For the receivers, Senior Wide Receiver Angelo Ahern caught the ball 4 times for 54 yards and 1 touchdown. Ahern’s performance this season has been impressive. He has caught the ball 34 times, gaining 604 yards and scoring 6 touchdowns. His average of 17.8 yards per catch and 50.3 yards per game is also something to pay attention to.
Coach Campbell and the other coaches had a clear objective for this season – to win a championship. “In all, it was obviously a successful season on the field, but more importantly, a successful season off the field,” Coach Campbell stated. They relentlessly worked towards this goal and their efforts paid off as they won a championship in their first year of coaching together. Their victory brought a historic moment for Centennial, as they clinched their first championship ring ever.
