COLLEGE STATION - Raheem Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Ricky Daniels as the DeSoto Eagles defeated Houston Lamar, 34-25, for the FOX Sports Southwest 7-on-7 State Championship.
Daniels, who was named Most Valuable Player for Division I, took a short pass and made two sharp cuts near the right sideline, escaping defenders on a touchdown that gave the Eagles a 34-19 lead.
DeSoto lost to Lake Travis in the 2010 7-on-7 state championship game, but neither Wilson nor Daniels were members of that team.
The game was a rematch of Friday's pool play game, which DeSoto won, 38-19.
Lamar cut the lead to 20-19 on the first drive of the second half when freshman quarterback Darrell Colbert, Jr., passed to Carrington Thompson for a score.
In the consolation final, Derrick Griffin's leaping touchdown over two defenders was his third of the first half and his Rosenberg Terry Rangers defeated Abilene Cooper, 46-26. Terry junior quarterback Antoine Arboleda directed the Rangers to touchdowns on their first seven offensive possessions.
