GREENWOOD (WAOW) - Thursday's Division 7 state football championship game will pit a pair of teams making their first-ever appearances in Madison. Greenwood-Granton heads to state for the first time as a co-op, where they'll meet Seneca. The Indians have given up just 14 points in 4 postseason games and also feature the state's leading rusher. However, G2 knows something about running the football as well. After going 0-9 in 2009, they enlisted help from the coaches at Division 1 finalist Kenosha Bradford, who worked with G2's option offense during summer camp in 2010. Now, in 2011, Greenwood-Granton averages 38 points per game. This from a team that was shut out 5 times during that '09 campaign.
Even though this is Greenwood-Granton's first trip to state, playing at Camp Randall is nothing new for some members of the their coaching staff. Three of the team's four coaches were part of the Greenwood team that won the school's only football state championship in 1990.
