Class 5A: Warner Robins 38, Calhoun 14
Fred Perry ran for 233 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 3 Warner Robins to a 38-14 win over No. 4 Calhoun in the Class 5A championship on Saturday, giving the Demons back-to-back titles for the time in the history of the storied program.
Perry scored on runs of 3 and 46 yards and gained more than 900 yards in the five state playoff games.
Christon Lane completed 14 of 24 passes for 157 yards and one touchdown and Deuce Petty led the team with five receptions for Warner Robins (14-10). The Demons amassed 436 yards in total offense.
Calhoun (12-3) got 84 yards rushing from Gage Leonard and 75 yards rushing from Caden Williams. Quarterback Christian Lewis completed 14 of 39 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns, but was intercepted once and sacked twice.
The biggest plays came on Calhoun’s first two possessions, which ended with fumbled punts. The first one was picked up by Khebrion Puchoon and converted four plays later on Brown’s 4-yard run. The second was knocked free by Chayce Smith and recovered by Nate Sanford, who ran for a 41-yard touchdown. That gave Warner Robins a 14-0 lead it never relinquished.
