LANETT, Ala. (WTVM) - While Central is taking the field Wednesday night, another high school football team is getting ready for its state championship appearance on Thursday.

Standing in the way is Mars Hill, the defending state champs with a 24-game winning streak.

Lanett is undefeated heading into their second title game in three seasons. They’ve faced though teams on the road to Jordan-Hare and they’re ready to face another one Thursday.
