Calhoun handles LFO in 6-AAA title game
One day, a team will rise up and finally dethrone the Calhoun Yellow Jackets as region champions.
Then again, maybe a team won’t.
No. 1-ranked and defending Class AAA state champion Calhoun set a new GHSA state record on Friday night with an 18th consecutive region title in a 49-0 shutout of LFO.
The Warriors had come to Phil Reeve Stadium looking to pull the shocker, but instead became the latest region opponent stung by the Jackets, who have not lost a game to a region foe since a 14-7 home loss to Darlington on Oct. 19, 2001 - a streak which now sits at 120 and counting.
LFO’S Braxton Jones grabs Calhoun’s Zack Fuller as James Beddington moves in to assist on the stop. The Warriors will open the Class AAA state playoffs at home this Friday against North Hall.
