GAME STORY: Hamlin’s title chance slips amid four turnovers in loss to Mart

ARLINGTON — While prepping for Thursday’s Class 2A Division II state championship game against Mart, Hamlin coach Russell Lucas cited limiting big plays, winning the turnover battle and blocking out distractions as the top keys for the Pied Pipers to dethrone the defending state champions. 

As it turned out, Hamlin achieved every key but one — losing the turnover battle (4-0) and eventually, the game, falling to Mart 25-20 at AT&T Stadium. 

Roddrell Freeman rushed for 173 yards and three touchdowns and Klyderion Campbell rushed for 60 yards and added a pick-six to lead Mart (13-3), which claimed its third straight state title with the win.
