In only his second year at the helm, Joey King led his Cartersville Purple Hurricanes to a AAAA State Championship win over the Buford Wolves Saturday night in the Georgia Dome.
This is Cartersville’s first title win since winning the 1999 AA state title. The Canes also had a AA championship win in 1991.
Cartersville came into the game undefeated at 10-0, and they managed to shut out 9-1 Buford’s offense in a 10-0 win after a good old fashioned defensive struggle.
The Purple Hurricanes breezed through the playoffs 42-7 over Columbia, 28-7 over Liberty County, 38-14 over Jonesboro, and 38-7 over Bainbridge.
