When I spoke with head coach Tom Fallaw earlier this week about the game he said that they wanted to finish the drill. That drill started with a win over Thomas County Central and ended here tonight with a state championship.
Cairo head coach Tom Fallaw says, "These kids have been special to us. 37 wins, I think, or 38 wins with four losses in three years. It's a good group. They're fun to be around."
Syrupmaker senior quarterback Angelo Pease adds, "It means a lot me because this was my last game for my high school career for football so it meant a lot to me. I want to tell all my teammates that I love them. They helped us battle through this and we came out on top. "
Senior linebacker Jake Elkins was at a loss for words, "Can't even think about it. Speechless. It's awesome."
Cairo senior defensive back Johnathon Shine says, "This is what it means to be a Syrupmaker. Kind of an inspiration to the underclassmen."
With the 28-14 win, the Syrupmakers can now be called state champions, their first title since 1990. from the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, I'm Sam Lane, WCTV Eyewitness Sports
