The Demons had a 0-3-1 record in State Championship games prior to Saturday. The closest they came to a Championship was in 1954 when they played in class A and were co-champions with Lamar High School. The final score of the ‘54 game was 7-7. At the time, high school football didn’t allow overtime, so the Demons ended up as Co-Champions with Lamar. The last time the Demons made it to state was in 1988 against Grand Junction, but Durango came up short, so this is the first outright championship for the Demon football team.
