SEGUIN -- In the world of six-man football, the action is fast and the scores look more like they belong to a basketball game. But just like 11-man football, in the end, there can only be one state champion. This year, the Lifegate Christian School in Seguin was the team to lay claim to the state’s top honor.

The Falcons began their journey back on Aug. 31, as they opened the season with a 54-6 win over San Antonio CASA. From there, the team blanked Our Lady of the Hills from Kerrville, 50-0, and then shut out New Braunfels Christian Academy, 46-0.

Lifegate had a great game with an injury- riddled Town East squad, and walked away with a 70-22 victory. In November, Lifegate picked up a 65-26 win over Fredericksburg Heritage, and then began preparing for playoff competition.

The Falcons took on Houston Texas Christian in the first round of the playoffs on Nov. 16, and obliterated the team with an 86-8 final score. Next up was Grandbury North Central Texas Academy, and the Falcons wasted little time en route to an 83-22 final.

Lifegate met Orange Community Christian in the state semifinals, and picked up an impressive 57-12 victory, moving the Falcons into the state final against Fredericksburg Heritage, the team they had beaten one month earlier.

Lifegate started things off with a Tyler Swisher touchdown run in the first quarter, but Fredericksburg came right back to even the score. Kyle Coffman then returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, and added another score a few minutes later with another Swisher run. Swisher then connected with Patrick Haley for a 30-yard touchdown, giving the Falcons a 32-8 lead after the first quarter of play.

Fredericksburg scored on a short run to open up the second quarter, but Swisher scored for Lifegate 20 seconds later. Swisher connected with Jayson Mittelberg from 3 yards out midway through the second quarter, and then ran one in from a yard out just before halftime. As the teams moved to intermission, it was Lifegate with a 54-14 lead.

The Falcons needed just one more score to end the game early by virtue of the mercy rule, and it came at the 7:14 mark of the third quarter on a 5-yard run by Swisher.

The Falcons ended their season with a perfect 14-0 record, and are the reigning TAPPS Division II six-man football state champions.

Congratulations, Falcons, on a great season!
