The final Helmet Stickers of the 2020 high school football season went to Palmer Ridge and Lamar Friday night.

Battling through the pandemic as well as difficult schedules both programs found their way to the Thunderbowl for the state championship games.

In the 4A title game, the Bears fell to Loveland, 42-6. However, the senior class finishes with a 44-5 record and three Class 3A trophies.

Playing for teammate Jesus Gonzalez all season, the Savages mounted playoff upsets of Sterling and Delta before falling to Eaton 28-21 in the 2A Championship.

Their first title game since the early 1960's, the magical run earned Lamar a tremendous amount of respect across Colorado and shows how far the program has come in recent years.
