The Hornets are returning to the Georgia Dome for an unprecedented back to back State Championship game in Football. The Hornets came up short vs. Colquitt County in 2015 but have different plans for 2016. The Senior Class of 2016 has more wins than any other class in the 67 years of Roswell High Football with a combined three year record of 36 – 5. The Hornets will bring their perfect 14 – 0 record to the Dome to battle the 13-1 Grayson Rams from Loganville, Ga. The Rams and the Hornets squared off last season in the AAAAAA Semi-Finals and the Hornets came away with a pulsating 30-26 win in the last ten seconds of the game.
Grayson is led by Head Coach Jeff Herron who has guided three other High Schools to State Championships during his career. Coach Herron is in his first year as Grayson’s Coach after long time Head Coach Mickey Conn left Grayson for Clemson. Grayson last won a State Championship in 2011 while the Hornets last won a State Championship in 2006.
Game time is scheduled for 8pm on Saturday December 10, 2016. Tickets are $20 at the door and $18 pre-sale. Tickets may be bought any day during the week of December 5 by coming to the Main Office at Roswell High School from 8:30am-4:00pm.
