The Dawson County football program hosted their annual awards banquet on Dec. 16 in the Performing Arts Center of the Dawson County High School, honoring members of all six Dawson County football teams. The ceremony was a testament to the “bottom-up” philosophy envisioned by Head Coach Sid Maxwell. “Four years ago, there were two teams at the high school level. A JV team that was a mix of freshmen and other classes and a varsity team,” Maxwell said. “Today we have 29 coaches on staff and a sixth grade, seventh grade, eighth grade, freshmen, JV and varsity program. Six teams.” With each team running the same offensive and defensive schemes, the benefits of an integrated One Dawson program became apparent through the course of the afternoon as athlete after athlete was called forward and acknowledged for their accomplishments over the course of this year’s historic season.
