Gilreath scores 21 points

It was "throwback night" at Dawson County's season opener against Tallulah Falls last week in Dawsonville. Both head coaches, Steve Sweat and Thad Burgess, decided to break out the old uniforms in a tribute to former players in the program.

"We decided to do this because we were playing a longtime opponent in Tallulah Falls," Sweat said. "We wore some uniforms that some of the mothers of my current players played in when they played for me years ago."
