A big congratulations to the Benjamin E. Mays football team after a big win last Friday. Tonight the Mays Raiders take on the Northside Eagles of Warner Robbins in the GHSA Class AAAAA State Championship.
These talented students, coaches and staff are making history! Not only is this the first Mays football team ever to make it to the state championship, when they win tonight, the Raiders will be the first APS football team to win a state championship in over three decades. The last school to do this was Southwest High School in 1973.
The game will take place tonight December 12, 2014, 8:00 p.m. at the Georgia Dome. Tickets are $20.
So make sure you fill the Dome and show your APS pride.
Congratulations again to Coach Jarvis and his football team. The entire district is cheering for you.
Go Raiders! Go!
