ORLANDO (AP) — Dalvin Cook rushed for 223 yards and four touchdowns to lead Miami Central to a 52-7 victory over Seffner Armwood in the Florida Class 6A state football championship game.

It was the second straight championship for Miami Central (13-1) and its third title in four seasons.

Cook, one of the nation's top-rated athletes, got Central on the board midway through the first quarter with a 37-yard touchdown run and would add scores of 6, 80 and 5 to close out his high school career.

The Rockets jumped out to a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter after DaVante Phillips hauled in a 19-yard touchdown pass from Keith Reed.

Armwood (14-1) tried to make a game of it before halftime as an interception by Kyle Gibson set up an 11-yard touchdown pass from Noah Johnson to Trevor Laurent to narrow the gap to 21-7 at halftime.

Phillips had four receptions for 92 yards for Central while Laurent had five catches for 51 yards to lead Armwood.
