Greeneville blanks Maplewood to win second straight 4A title

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tanner Stewart ran for 191 yards and three touchdowns, and threw for another to help Greeneville defeat Maplewood 37-0 on Saturday for the 4A championship, its second in a row.

Stewart, the game's offensive MVP, threw for 59 yards on 2-of-4 passing.

The Greene Devils (14-1) won their 13th game in a row, and have a 2-0 record against Maplewood (11-4) after beating the Panthers 17-7 in last year's Class 4A semifinals.

Jamel Hall ran for 124 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries, and Hays Culbreth caught the 43-yard touchdown pass from Stewart.

Greeneville had 443 yards of total offense, with 354 coming on the ground.

LaDarius Vanlier had 71 yards on 18 carries for the Panthers.
