MONROE, LA (WAFB) -

Despite Jarell Martin sitting out 11 minutes in the first half, the Madison Prep Chargers (42-6) still found a way to take down Simsboro 53-37 in the Class B State Championship game.

While Martin sat on the bench, both Brandon Sampson and Chad Williams stepped in and provided the scoring for the Chargers.

Williams scored 10 points in the first half. He finished the game with 14 points and 11 rebounds in route to being named the Class B Most Outstanding Player. Sampson knocked a game high 16 points on 7 of 12 shooting.
