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!
