Georgia Senate honors North Fulton football team

Blessed Trinity Catholic High School’s football team took a victory lap on Wednesday at the state Senate chambers in Atlanta.

The Titans won the 2017 state football title for Class AAAA with a 16-7 win over Marist in December. It was the Roswell high school's first ever state championship for football.

And Senator John Albers, R – Roswell, thought that was a good enough reason to bring the Titans into the Senate chambers, to give them a resolution commending their 2017 championship.

"These students made us and their community proud," Albers said in a statement. "I could not be happier for my friend, Coach Tim McFarlin, who led the team this year and I look forward to watching the Titans bring home many more championships in the future."

The entire football team was present in the Senate gallery during the recognition and got their picture taken with Governor Nathan Deal.

Blessed Trinity finished the season with a 13-2 record and on a six-game win streak. The Titans scored 475 points and allowed just 201.
