Championship Games In Review

AAAAAA

Norcross 21, Lovejoy 14

Norcross helmet Recap: Alvin Kamara scored on a 61-yard reception and a 10-yard run as Norcross (15-0) rallied from a 14-3 fourth-quarter deficit. Myles Autry caught an 11-yard touchdown pass to cut the lead to 14-9 with 7:17 to play, and Kamara scored his touchdowns in the final five minutes. Kamara finished with 119 yards rushing on 33 carries. Lovejoy's Travis Custis had 60 yards rushing on 20 carries for the game and 11 carries for 4 yards in the second half.

 

History: Norcross won its first state title in its 56th season of varsity football. Coach Keith Maloof joined father George Maloof to become the third father and son to win state titles. The others are Hal and Ray Lamb and Chip and Rodney Walker. Norcross became the fourth Gwinnett County school in seven seasons to win the highest classification after Peachtree Ridge (2006), Brookwood (2010) and Grayson (2011) and the sixth overall from Gwinnett in that time on a list that includes Wesleyan (2008) and Buford (2007-10, 2012).

Gainesville 49, Ware County 13

Gainesville helmet Recap: QB Deshaun Watson passed for 317 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 85 yards and two scores for Gainesville (12-3). Watson broke the state record for career passing yardage, became the third player to pass for 4,000 yards in a season and became the second to throw 50 TD passes in a season. Xavier Tobler scored both touchdowns for Ware County on 2-yard runs.

 

History: Gainesville won its first state title after six losses in championship games. Coach Bruce Miller won his first state title in his 26th season as a Georgia coach, the longest wait of its kind in state history. Gainesville became the first team since 1967 Marietta to win a state title after losing its final two regular-season games. Gainesville is the first Hall County school to win a GHSA title but the third to win a state championship. Riverside Military Academy won a state title in 2005 in the Georgia Independent School Association. Fair Street of Gainesville won state titles in 1956 and 1957 in the Georgia Interscholastic Association, the governing body for black schools during segregation.

History: Buford became the second school in Georgia history to win eight state titles in 12 years. The other is Valdosta, which won nine in 12 years twice (1951-62 and 1960-71).

Trivia

Emanuel County Institute's 40-point victory in the Class A public final represents one of the 10 most-lopsided state championship victories in history. What is the largest victory margin in a state final? (Answer Tuesday)

 

Answer to Friday's question:The last champion in the highest classification to win all of its games by eight or more points was 1986 Valdosta. Norcross could've matched that feat but won by seven in the final. The last champion to win by seven or more points in each game before Norcross was Camden County in 2003.

Please send all-region teams to GHSF Daily at ghsfdaily@bellsouth.net. We recommend that all-region teams include the year in school of each player. All-region players who are recognized as underclassmen have a better chance of being recruited and getting recognition on preseason all-area or all-state teams in 2013.
