Creek’s football team won their fourth state championship in a row 24-17, becoming its 13th all-time, and Coach Dave Logan’s fifth at Creek. This is the only four-peat in 5A Colorado football history, however, Creek made a similar three-peat run from 1994 to 1996.

Emotions ran high during the game, according to senior running back Bubba Tann. “To be able to go out there and be down by four in the first half and keep the momentum up: we were all just really happy and excited that we were able to complete the journey,” he said over text interview.

Tann’s average of 111.3 yards per game carried into the championship, leading him to win MVP at the end of the game. In reference to the award, Tann said, “It just made me realize that I was a key part in the win we took. It felt really good to be able to contribute and overall get the W.”

Tann’s senior season was completed on a satisfactory win, sweetened by its three predecessors. “Being able to win one is hard let alone four in a row. Being able to do that is just really a dream come true,” he said.
