Marion County gets superstar treatment as they go to the Georgia Dome

Posted: Updated:
MARION COUNTY, Ga. - Music and loud cheers echoed in Eagle country  as Marion County sent their football team to the Georgia Dome for Saturday’s state championship game against Charlton County. The team is pumped.

 “We are going to make the trip to the dome and do our best to bring the trophy home to you guys. Tomorrow, we have got to hear it,” said head coach Mike Swaney. “Let me hear it tonight Eagle fans. Let’s hear it.”

Family, friends, and fans want the Eagles to make history and have the seniors finish four heavily decorated years.

At the Eagle’s field house, you can see the dominance this senior class has had. What they really want is a sign that says state champions to go with their region championship signs.

It is an energy that Eagles players have felt all week. Sometimes, they can’t even believe it.

“ I’ve never seen anything like this,” said defensive tackle Cameron Cox. “All the town support. It gets your heart pumping and ready for the game.”

Coach Swaney made sure the Marion County community knew how much they meant to the team.

“Thank you to the greatest high school football fans in the world,” Coach Swaney said. Thank you!”

When the sun rises Saturday, the Eagles will attempt to soar new heights and win the state title.
