The Gilmer Buckeyes pulled it off. Last night they won their first ever state football championship, defeating Jasper 49-47. They were ahead 14-0 at the end of the first quarter. Jasper almost pulled it out, but the Buckeyes prevailed in what must have been a thriller of a game.
Victory parade on the courthouse square tomorrow night. Nothing like this ever happened in my day. Congratulations, Buckeyes!
