I had a photo shoot with a high school football champion and his family last weekend. The Valdosta Wildcats, became the 2016 state champions in the Georgia Dome in December. Their starting lineup was filled with future Valdosta High School hall of famers; one being offensive lineman Jalen Wilcox (#78). The Valdosta Wildcats are the most winningest high school football team in American History. Here are just a few stats to let you know what the Wildcats are about:
- Over 900 wins in the program’s 100 years of tradition
- Valdosta was named Titletown USA by ESPN in 2008
- 6 National Champions
- 42 Regional Champions
- 24 state champions with the most recent one in 2016 in the Georgia Dome
- The Bazemore-Hyder stadium was ranked top 5 High School Football stadiums in America (can hold up to 11249 fans on any given Friday night)
It was a good spending time with the champion and his family, and here are some of the images from the photo shoot.
