“Here Comes the Boom” was the slogan written on the banner held by the 6U cheerleaders prior to Saturday’s Super Bowl at East Jackson High School.
The slogan comes from a 2012 sports film written by Allan Loeb, but on Saturday the Raiders’ Trynton Latimore wrote his own version of Boom as his four touchdowns led the 6 and under Raiders to a 38-6 Super Bowl Championship win over Flowery Branch. The Raiders defeated the same Flowery Branch team earlier in the season by a 44-32 score.
It was history in the making as the Super Bowl win on Saturday was the first ever for a Madison County Youth Association football team.
“This team has worked very hard to accomplish their goals,” said head coach Daniel Hill. “The amount of effort that they put in every practice and game is truly impressive.”
The 6U Raiders completed a perfect 11-0 season where they allowed only 80 points all season, including six in the championship game. Madison County’s road to the championship included a scoring frenzy where they outscored their opponents 114-12 in postseason play.
