We are almost to the finish line of the 2020 season. Teams will have this week to prepare and enjoy Christmas, then at noon on Tuesday, Dec. 29 at Georgia State’s Center Parc Stadium, the No. 8 Callaway Cavaliers will play the top-ranked Fitzgerald Purple Hurricane.

The Cavs will be seeking their first-ever state championship, with the program launching in 1996. This is also their first title game appearance. The Purple Hurricane will be seeking their first title since 1948.
