The championship marks the first state title for the Bulldogs since 2000 and Male's first undefeated season since 1964.
"To be one of the best Male High team ever...it just feels great. We finally finished," said receiver Keion Wakefield, who caught two touchdowns in the win.
Lafayette quarterback Walker Wood, a UK commit, passed for 229 yards and a touchdown and rushed 136 yards with one touchdown.
