After winning the Colorado Class 5A football state championship for Valor Christian High School, Michigan signee Dylan McCaffrey decided to do it again on the basketball court.

McCaffrey helped Valor Christian to a 68-55 win over Lewis-Palmer High School in the Colorado Class 4A state title game on Saturday. The championship win for the Eagles (24-4) marked its first basketball state crown in school history.

The future Michigan quarterback was limited by early foul trouble in the state championship, but finished with six points on two-for-four shooting from the field. In Friday’s semifinal victory, McCaffrey dropped 15 points.

As a senior, McCaffrey completed 204-of-306 passes for 2,796 yards, 31 touchdowns, and five interceptions. He added 107 carries for 579 yards and 10 touchdowns. Across his Valor Christian career, he completed 63.6 percent of his passes for 8,023 yards, 80 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions with 352 carries for 735 yards and 36 scores.

The 6-foot-5, 195-pound quarterback was ranked No. 123 in the 2017 class, according to the 247Sports Composite. He was the fifth-best pro-style quarterback and the second-best player in the state of Colorado. He signed with Michigan on February 1st after committing on February 15, 2016.
