6. Phoebus' new coach, same result: The Phantoms win their third Division 5 state football championship in four years, and do so with new head coach Stan Sexton at the helm. Sexton, right, replaced program architect Bill Dee, who resigned in January and took an assistant's position at Christopher Newport. Sexton was the head coach at Warwick for four years after spending the previous 14 years as an assistant to Dee. Unlike the 2008 season, the Phantoms don't opponents and simply find ways to win, including the title game versus Stone Bridge. It still adds up to 15-0 and the program's fifth state title this decade.
