Elliott’s Three Touchdowns Help Warren Central Complete Perfect Season

Warren Central kept its perfect record intact, both for the 2018 season and in the school’s state finals history, with a 27-7 victory over Carmel in the Class 6A championship game.
Coach Jayson West’s Warriors got three touchdowns from tailback Romeir Elliott (two rushing, one receiving) to finish 14-0 and claim the program’s ninth state title. Warren Central has made nine appearances in the championship round, dating back to 1984. The Warriors have now beaten Carmel four times in the title game.
Warren Central also becomes the first school in state history to finish unbeaten, state-championship seasons in boys basketball and football in the same calendar year.
The winners never trailed in the contest, taking the lead late in the first quarter on a 35-yard run by Elliott. The Warriors went up, 13-0, on its next possession as quarterback Jayden George hit Montrez Stanley for a 24-yard score.
Carmel cut the lead to 13-7 at halftime on a 9-yard pass from Gabe Quigley to Aidan Ellison. From there, the Greyhounds (11-3) had two drives into Warren Central territory with a chance to at least even the score, but the Warrior defense came up with interceptions both times.
Later in the third quarter, George hit Elliott for a 65-yard touchdown, before George directed a 12-play, 68-yard drive that burned nearly six minutes of the fourth quarter clock to ice the game. Elliott did the finishing honors on that drive, blasting in from 2 yards out. He finished with 25 rushes for 162 yards, giving him 2,980 yards for the season.
Coach John Hebert’s Carmel squad was seeking to avenge a 41-17 loss to WC earlier in the season. The Greyhounds were making their state-record tying 15th finals appearance, winning eight.
