The Welsh football team is leaving the Welsh area this morning to head to the Big Easy to play for their second straight state championship.

If you remember the Greyhounds won that state championship in 2017 and are looking to repeat in 2018.

The team went 7-3 in the regular season then ran the table in the 2018 playoffs.  Welsh's opponent in the 2-A state championship game will be Amite.

Amite was 9-1 in the regular season and also ran the table in the playoffs.

Welsh and Amite will face off this Friday, December 7th for the 2-A State Championship at noon.  The game is played inside the Superdome in New Orleans.
