Congratulations to GMC on a hard-fought season

MILLEDGEVILLE — From the moment the Georgia Military College Bulldogs stepped onto the field in their first game in August, there was an air of excitement about this special group of Bulldogs. The result that game was a 37-21 victory on the road, toppling Blinn College. In the weeks that followed, GMC continued to tack on victories on the way to a spotless 11-0 regular season record.

The Bulldogs came up shy of a national championship title last weekend but they returned from Mississippi to a community of well-wishers and fans. Though they end the season 11-1, the Bulldogs have given GMC fans a thrilling ride this fall, one of which earned them a runner-up finish in the NJCAA, respectively.

The Bulldogs represented Milledgeville and Baldwin County in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) national championship game Sunday where they took on East Mississippi Community College. All season long this team of student-athletes and coaches represented well. Week after week this team thrilled local crowds and generated excitement on the field and off, going undefeated in the regular season and earning a No. 1 ranking they worked to maintain throughout the season. Their sportsmanship, competitiveness and dedication and focus on the goal of winning a national title is certainly to be commended by the entire community.

All of there weeks and months of practice, hard work, planning and preparation led them to the national championship game and their dedication was reflected in their performances week after week against some of the toughest competition in the country. They brought the goal of winning a second national title for GMC closer to reality, a goal we’re certain the team will be back at work seeking to fulfill next season.

Congratulations to coach Bert Williams and the GMC players and staff on a great season and thank you for all of the football excitement you generated for Milledgeville and the entire Baldwin County community.
