Should the Pride thank Hamilton to a degree for state title run?

It’s pretty clear the talent to win a state title was there for Mountain Pointe.

There’s no debating that.

One thing that has crossed my mind in the days that have followed, if the Pride never gained the confidence from beating Bishop Gorman in the Sollenberger Classic would they have been as dominant?

It’s something we will never know, but they have Hamilton, the team the Pride beat for the championship, to thank for it.

If you remember correctly, Hamilton, as defending champions, were originally asked to play Gorman but turned it down because it was already playing two out of state games.

In stepped the Pride and out came a swagger that helped Mountain Pointe to essentially blow out the next 13 opponents after beating nationally-respected and -ranked Gorman.

I’m not sure the Pride would have had that same confidence and attitude if they crossed back over the Hoover Dam had played and defeated Liberty (Nev.).

Just one last nugget of info before putting the wraps on the 2013 football season.
