Chenango Forks and Susquehanna Valley are our 12 Sports Athletes of the Week.

SYRACUSE (WBNG) - Susquehanna Valley and Chenango Forks delivered two state titles to the area in the span of just three days.

"Man it's exhilarating," said Susquehanna Valley head coach Mike Ford.

"It just never gets old I'll tell ya," said Chenango Forks head coach Dave Hogan.

For Susquehanna Valley, it was their second straight title continuing their 26 game win their, the longest in New York State.

"I probably won't realize this until some time tomorrow because right now it is just hitting me but I am so proud of these kids, in this battle they fight back through adversity and I am really proud of them," said Ford.

The Sabers lost 18 senior from last years championship but it was the next man up mentality that got them to the same exact spot.

"When we started seeing what was coming up ahead, we knew that if we buckled down and stayed healthy we would have a shot," said Ford.

For the Blue Devils it was the sixth title in school history and the fourth with Dave Hogan as the team's head coach.

"This is just as special as the other ones, it's great. This is a new group of kids, you are just so happy for them, you are on that journey for them and it just means so much," said Hogan.

Each and every season we see Chenango Forks close to this spot so the question asks, how do they keep it up?

"It's the kids, if the kids you are coaching don't do what they are asked you don't have anything," said Hogan.

Both teams have kids that shined on the field this season, especially you game MVP's Lucas Scott and Logan Haskell.

"Just knowing as a team you worked your butts off all year from the start of June and it finally pays off and we really took it to them today," said Chenango Forks junior Lucas Scott.

Both teams also have a brotherhood that goes way beyond the football field

"We are all a bunch of brothers, they are all my best friends I told them before the game, whatever happens I love every single one of you guys," said Scott.

"All of us hang out all the time and It's a really nice brotherhood we have," said Susquehanna Valley junior Logan Haskell.

So as Susquehanna Valley and Chenango Forks head into an offseason of triumph they can both agree on one thing,

"I am going to cherish this for a while," said Hogan.
