BLITZ adds pair of teams to Hall of Fame
As is the case each season that wraps up, we look to see what teams we can add to the BLITZ Hall of Fame. One of these programs is part of a Dynasty. Full criteria can be found here.
Coach: Kevin Morris
Record: 22-8 [STATE RUNNER-UP]
Accomplishments: State Runner-Up, Region Champions, #2 State Ranking
The Dragons got hot at the absolute perfect time, and made an historic run to their first-ever State Championship game appearance in Macon. They won 13 straight to get there. Heading into the final minutes of the title game, Jefferson even held a lead. The Dragons lost the season-opener to powerhouse Banks County, and dropped 5 of their first 9 games of the year. On December 10 after losing to Franklin County by 8, Jefferson was a modest 4-5 and 0-2 in region play. Hardly impressive. Something changed, as Jefferson went 18-2 the rest of the way. Key players of this team included Jacob Radaker (reached 1K pts), Owen Parker, Daniel Parker, Spencer Darby, Malaki Starks, and others.
Coach: Kendall Love
Accomplishments: State Champions (Traditionals), State Runner-Up (Duals), Region/Area Champions, #1 State Ranking
The legacy continues as the Tigers earned a 7th straight Traditionals Championship. The runner-up finish in Duals snapped a 6-year streak of championships, but all told, this DYNASTY now has 13 rings going back to 2013!
