A parade will be held for the 2012 Jefferson Dragons football team on Sunday, Jan. 6, at 1:30 p.m. The event is a joint effort between the City of Jefferson and Jefferson City Schools. Citizens are asked to line up on the sides of Washington Street from Jefferson High School into downtown. The parade will culminate with a pep rally on the north side of the square. The Dragons defeated the Calhoun Yellow Jackets 31-14 in the Class AA finals to capture the school’s first-ever state championship at the Georgia Dome on Dec. 15. For more information on Sunday’s parade, call Beth Laughinghouse at 706-367-5714.

How pathetic is it for someone to try and rain on the parade of these young men who earned their championship trophy this year? When Commerce won their state championship 12 years ago, I pulled for them to win it all, because they were representing our county so well.
It's really pretty sad when the adults take this stuff more seriously than the kids do.
