Future Alabama Kicker Wins Georgia State Championship

With the game and season on the line, Calhoun kicker Adam Griffith calmly stepped up and kicked a 32-yard field goal in overtime to win the Georgia AA State Championship in the Georgia Dome on Friday afternoon.

He also kicked field goals of 29, 46 and 36 yards to beat the four-time defending champions Buford 27-24.

"I didn’t think about anything other than just kick the ball," said Griffith, "I wasn’t nervous. I was confident."

On the losing end was Alabama commits linebacker Dillon Lee and tight end Kurt Freitag of Buford.

The game almost ended in regulation with Calhoun leading 24-17 and set to punt near midfield with 47 seconds left. However, a low snap and pressure from the defense caused the punter (not Griffith) to fumble. The ball was snatched up by Lee and he took it back for a 40-yard touchdown to send the game into OT.
