Your program has been a lifesaver for my son, Jeffrey Sweeney (quarterback with his school team, the Houston County Sharks in the white jerseys) who suffered a massive stroke at the age of 14. He became severely depressed and had lost his will to keep going; he was giving up. His schoolwork was failing, his no-quit attitude was slipping and his will to be the best was fading. Joining this team gave it all back to him and then some. The team gave him a reason to keep going. I will never be able to put into words how grateful I am. This program gave my son back a part of his life that was taken from him.
The Houston County Sharks hold on to beat the Gwinnett Heat 45-35 in the 2016 wheelchair football state championship game on Saturday, April 30th at Duluth High School.
The Sharks scored touchdowns on all four of their second-half possessions to pull away after the two sides were tied at the half. It was a great battle, spurred by a mid season defeat by the Heat that snapped a 64-game Adapted Sports Winning Streak.
It was a great effort by both teams to finish strong — but the Sharks prevailed.
In other scores from the day, the West Georgia Wolverines defeated the Henry County Hurricanes 35 – 21 to take the 2016 Junior Varsity State Football Championship Title!
