The DeKalb County High School Tiger football team sent 15 seniors out on a winning note, Friday night, as they upended the Macon County Tigers, 33-23, in the last game of the 2007 football season.
The Tigers opened up a 13-0 lead in the first quarter on a pair of Hunter Poteete touchdown passes. The sophomore hit Abram Edwards on a 30-yard scoring strike, then found J.J. Herriott on a 63-yard pass. Macon County sacked Poteete in the end zone, early in the second quarter, to get on the board. Kyle Grace's seven-yard touchdown pass to Brian Trask on fourth-and-goal, midway through the second quarter, cut the DC lead to 13-10. DeKalb came back with a six-yard scoring run by Corey Cripps, but Grace scored on a 20-yard touchdown run, making it a 19-17 DeKalb County advantage with just under two minutes left in the half.
