If the Wildcats want to get to the CIF Division III South state championship bowl game at Home Depot Center, they'll have to go through the Madison High School Warhawks first.

The Warhawks have won their league's title seven times in the last eight years, according to the school's website. The team played in the state championship bowl game in 2010 and lost to Escalon, a northern California team.
Madison is led by quarterback Kareem Coles, a sophomore who threw for 1,429 yards and 20 touchdowns and rushed for 876 yards and six touchdowns this season, according to MaxPreps.
Senior runningback Pierre Cormier led the Warhawks with 1,779 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns. Cormier has committed to the University of Arizona, ESPN reports. Wide receiver Lee Walker, who also committed to Arizona, led Madison in receiving with 498 yards and 10 touchdowns.
