Jefferson City native Hale Hentges, who played his high school football at Helias Catholic, scored his first touchdown in his fourth and final national championship game. Hentges, primarily a blocking tight end, caught just his 15th pass in four seasons and his sixth touchdown. It came with just over six minutes left in the first quarter.
Alabama was trailing 14-7 and had the ball at the Clemson one on second-and-goal.
Four TDs. Less than 10 minutes into the game.
