With the victory the Jaguars advanced to the State Title game this Friday night against Fullington Academy at Jaguar Field.

The Jaguars will face a familiar opponent in Fullington Academy this Friday night. The two squads will be playing for the third time this season.

“Fullington will give us all we want and it should be another classic showdown for the state title,” Wimberly said. “I am so proud for our Senior Class of: Rhett Gardner, Cole Godowns, William Hendricks, Trevor Rowland, Zeke Sammons and Ryder Watkins, who as eighth graders did not win a game, and look at them now, playing for a state championship. What a thrill it must be for them and their parents, and all the Jaguar fan base.”

Wimberly added that he expects this championship game to be “another showdown for the ages.”

Game Time is set for 7:30 p.m. at Jaguar Field. All fans are urged to come early to assure themselves of a seat due to an overflow crowd expected to be on hand for the State Championship game.

The Jaguar Fan base is to be on the Field at 7:15 to form a spirit line for the Jaguars as they march towards the state title.
