Multiple Teams · Roswell and Grayson Collide in the 2016 STATE AAAAAAA Championship Game


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.

Multiple Teams · PEBBLEBROOK FALCONS vs. ROSWELL HORNETS 1ST ROUND OF 2016 STATE AAAAAAA PLAYOFFS


     The Hornets completed their second consecutive 10 – 0 Regular Season record in 2016 with last week’s Region Championship win vs. Cherokee.   A remarkable record to consider that the Football team has not lost a regular season game since 2014.   The Senior laden Hornets now enter the second season of State Playoff Football. Each week is an elimination game.  Currently in AAAAAAA Classification there are a total of 32 teams remaining statewide in the 1st Round. After Friday night there will only be 16 teams to advance to the 2nd Round.  

The lifetime record of Pebblebrook vs. Roswell is 2 and 4 with Pebblebrook recording it’s 4th win in 1993.  The Falcons from Mabelton, Ga. and the Hornets have not met on the gridiron for 23 years.   Unlike Roswell’s playoff experience the Falcon Football program has not been in the playoffs for nearly ten years since a 2007 loss to Rome High School.

Pebblebrook runs the Wing T on offense and has a reputation as a hard nosed football team.   Kickoff is at 730pm.   Tickets can be bought online at https://gofan.co/roswell using your computer or phone.  Tickets can be printed out or present the code on your smart phone for scanning. Ticket prices are $8.00 at the gate.  All ticket prices are set by the GHSA and only GHSA passes, Employees of participating schools and Media passes are allowed entry without a ticket.
