MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WCTV) -- The Madison County community is celebrating with their favorite Cowboys as they won their second-straight football title on Thursday.

On Thursday, Madison County defeated Baker High School for the FSHAA 1A football championship. While the town may look like it's getting ready for Christmas, many feel it's still Cowboy season.

Signs could be seen all throughout Madison Friday, showing support for the Cowboys.

Ellie Cherry was one of the many fans who traveled to Orlando to see the victory firsthand.

"To get to see all the boys so happy after the won, it was really great to see all the community come and support everybody," Cherry said."I think it's really great to see the community coming together in that way, to support everybody like that. It might just be a small part to some, but I think it's a really big deal for them."

With yet another championship under their belt, some said the win is about much more than taking home a trophy.

"It lets the county know and the kids know that small towns can do things," said Sam Stalnaker, of Madison County. "It's not all about sports. It's about developing the whole person, educationally, athletically and being a person."

Madison County Schools staff said they are still working on planning a special celebration for the football team.

Madison city staff said the school has organized a parade in the past, but they have ordered a championship banner that is on its way.
