NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A state title is coming back to Amite after a 14-year absence. The Warriors disposed of Welsh, 47-20, to win the Class 2A crown.
Amite (14-1) was led by quarterback Amani Gilmore, and the exploits of Devonta Lee. Gilmore, a Kentucky commit, threw five touchdown passes and ran for a score. Lee, a 4-star recruit, caught a touchdown pass, ran for a touchdown, picked off a pass, and forced a fumble.
Lee is being heavily recruited by Alabama and LSU. Lee stars at both receiver and safety, but will focus on offense at the next level.
