Norcross Wins Class AAAAAA Football Title

The Blue Devils defeated Lovejoy High 21-14 in the state championship game.

After an undefeated 14-win season, the Blue Devils added one more win Saturday at the Georgia Dome.

Norcross High defeated Lovejoy High 21-14 in the state football championship,  earning the Class AAAAAA title for the first time.

The game had a slow start with nothing on the board until Lovejoy scored a 60-yard touchdown in the second quarter for a 7-0 lead. Norcross kicked a field goal in the third quarter, but the Wildcats answered with another touchdown minutes later, taking a 14-3 lead.

Norcross' winning points came in the fourth quarter with Alvin Kamara's 61-yard touchdown reception, which was followed by another touchdown by the running back.

Saturday's game was the first time Norcross had ever reached the state finals.

Before the game, Maxwell Ratings had projected Norcross would win the title by 9 points.
