ATLANTA -- Liam Welch threw two touchdown passes to Daniel Lindsay, and Augusta's Aquinas High won its first Georgia state football championship with a 27-7 victory over Savannah's Calvary Day.<br />
Friday's win at the Georgia Dome completes a perfect season for Aquinas as the team claims the Class A Private School title.<br />
Welch completed 9 of 12 passes for 132 yards, and Ruben Garnett rushed for 111 yards in 19 carries, scoring on a 37-yard run.<br />
Robert Heyward scored Calvary Day's touchdown on a 16-yard run and finished with 154 yards on 27 carries.
The talk will undoubtedly center on the number 42 this week -- when the real discussion should be on the football, which promises to be interesting indeed when Buford travels to face McEachern on Friday in Week 2 of the 2015 high school football season.
