Going into the season, Tigers Head Coach Sid Maxwell set a theme for his new football team: Playing for those that came before you, setting the standard for those to follow. On Friday night, those words rang out as the 41-0 victory over rival Lumpkin County cemented the Tigers as 7-AAA region champions, a first in Dawson County High School history. "I've had some great teams that I've coached through the years, and this is probably one of my proudest moments," said Maxwell, in his first season with the Tigers.
