North Cross lost their 2008 season home opener to the Knights of Blessed Sacrament Huguenot, 17-7. The Raiders were ready for the rematch on November 14, 2008 on the Knights’ home field for the state title game.
Going into halftime, the Raiders were down 6-0, but came back strong in the second half. Ted Robison '09 shared that his most memorable moment of the game came when the Raiders called a fake punt on a fourth down late in the fourth quarter with the score 14-6, North Cross. Following that play, the Raiders drove for long touchdown run that sealed the 21-6 victory and an 11-1 record for the season.
This win was the first state championship for Raider football since the 1993 season and we were honored to have them back for Homecoming.
