GMC goes for 2nd national championship
Wednesday morning, about 20 Georgia Military College football players traveled to the capital to meet the governor.
They received the honor because this weekend the Bulldogs are playing for a national championship.
It would be the schools second under head coach Bert Williams.
GMC is undefeated and top-ranked as they go up against second-ranked East Mississippi Community College.
The Dogs piled up points. going 11-0,this year but the Lions have a powerful offense themselves, averaging about 45 points a game.
Williams says his guys have to protect the ball to come out on top against the Lions.
"They've been very prolific this year and I think a lot of their scores have come on short fields, and they've also come off of defensive scores and turnovers, so their defense has created that, but offensively they've put a lot of points up, and so we're going to have to step up and slow them down, so if we have to score 46 we will find a way to do that on the offensive side as well," Williams said.
The guys have one more practice Thursday before they leave for Biloxi Friday.
