Their accomplishments on the gridiron captured the hearts and minds of their school and community so it’s not surprising that it was a little emotional for all involved to see it end last Friday night.
The Apalachee High School football team had a season for the ages in 2009. It will not be forgotten by the players, coaches or fans. Successful football seasons have a way of doing that for small communities. I know Winder and Barrow County are not the smallest of small, but we aren’t so big either that we don’t appreciate when one of our local teams does something special.
Such was the case for coach Shane Davis and his Wildcats this fall. The season, which began way back in late August with a victory against Monroe Area, finally culminated last Friday with a bitter chill in the air against Griffin. It didn’t end, however, until the AHS Wildcats made all of Barrow County proud.
