Image 1 of 5

We’re giving a High 5 Sports salute to Coach Chris Slade and his Pace Academy Knights. They’ve had an amazing season so far. We don't want to jinx them going into their AA title game against Fitzgerald, but we need to say that the Knights have been awesome!

That football program is only 8 years old and Tuesday they were preparing to play for the state title.

They'll kickoff at 1 p.m. on Saturday against a Fitzgerald team they lost to in the quarterfinals last year.

Speaking of last year, 13 seniors are back, which is a good sign and they're in a groove right now.
