In a game that was scheduled to be played at Mercedes-Benz last Friday, the Rome Wolves had to wait one more week, and travel down to Warner Robins. Warner Robins Demons were 14-0 and according to social media, ready for “The Fall of Rome”. Rome did not fall, Rome dominated the 5A State Championship game. The Rome High Wolves easily defeated the Warner Robins Demons 38-0.
Not only did the Wolves complete, what some describe an unbelievable season, they have risen to become the premier team of Georgia High School Football. Rome broke records last night, and have several players that will proceed on to the next level. Wolves now hold the record for most points in a season, 740 points in 2017. This record makes them the highest scoring (single season) high school football team in the history of the State of Georgia.
