Back-to-back titles for VMS Tomcats

VALDOSTA — High school football has officially come to an end in Georgia, and while none of the area’s teams were able to add to the championships in Titletown, USA, one middle school team made their fans proud.

The Valdosta Middle School Tomcats 12U won their second consecutive Turkey Bowl, 33-6, over Thomasville.

VMS was on a roll throughout the season as the Tomcats strolled through the regular season undefeated.

On Nov. 16, VMS met the Titletown All-Stars in the Titletown Bowl at Goddard Field at Valwood School to determine the champions of Titletown. The Tomcats defeated the All-Stars 20-0 in the championship game. Corey McCann and Chris Joseph were named co-MVPs for their efforts in the win.

Eleven days later, the VMS Tomcats traveled to Tifton to defend their 12U Turkey Bowl titles.

Tomcats head coach Dirk Harrell and defensive coordinator Jerome Everett went into the tournament with an excellent game plan and it showed on the field. VMS defeated Thomasville, 33-6, in the 51st Turkey Bowl Championship game to capture back-to-back titles.

McCann and Joseph were once again named as co-MVPs following back-to-back tournament wins in which the Tomcats scored 81 points and only gave up six.
