ORLANDO, Fla. -- Brice Hamilton (Madison, Fla./Madison County) watched on as his teammates fought tooth and nail for a state championship from the sidelines. The 6-foot-4, 195-pound junior linebacker couldn't play, having broken a bone in his leg earlier in the season.

The Cowboys led for the majority of the contest, but Hamilton felt the momentum swing and a championship ring slip away in a 24-17 loss to Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) University School in the Class 3A state championship game at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

"I was thinking that I had faith in them the whole time," Hamilton said. "I just felt like that if I was there, I could have helped my team and had an impact on the game. We just came up short. I feel like any player could have stepped up and changed the game at any time."
