Francois in Maryland state title game

Giovani Francois will be playing in the Maryland Class 4A state championship game Friday for his new school Henry A. Wise, which defeated Broadneck 14-7 in its semifinal last week.

The former Southeast High star transferred to Wise last month after the Manatee County School board denied his request to play for the Seminoles following a legal matter that was thrown out of court. He has made a huge impact on his new team though he has played in only three games for the Pumas (12-1).

The 6-2, 255 pound defensive lineman has been credited with 28 tackles and is tied for third on his team with five sacks. He has forced three fumbles and recovered a fumble.

Wise will return to M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore for its 7 p.m. kickoff. Last year, the Pumas lost 17-16 in the state championship game at the same field. Their opponent this time is Urbana, which rolled to a 37-6 defeated Gaithersburg 37-6 in the other 4A semifinal game.
