Played since 1968, “The Winnersville Classic” is here yet again this Friday night. Valdosta has historically dominated the series, especially considering they are the winningest high school football team in the nation.
However, as Valdosta holds the historical edge, Lowndes has recently been up to the challenge that Valdosta presents. Lowndes absolutely decimated the Wildcats from Valdosta 45-0 last season. This Friday night, Valdosta will look to get back on top.
Rivalry Series MVP Travis Tisdale simply could not be stopped. Tisdale put together a career performance, rushing for a whopping 413 yards and six touchdowns in a truly astounding performance, helping his team put 71 points on the board. In an offensive showcase, the two teams combined for more than 100 points, and Lowndes still blew out Valdosta. Tisdale gave an early cue as to what kind of night he planned on having with an 80 yard touchdown run on his first touch of the game. From there, it only got better for Tisdale and the Vikings and worse for the Wildcats from Valdosta, as he would help lead his team to 71 points. The Lowndes defense then stepped up in the second half and helped the Vikings to an easy rout over their bitter rivals.
