A Winning Year: 2013 Wheelchair Football Results


April 27th was more than just another AAASP State Championship in Georgia. It was a landmark event of the Varsity and Junior Varsity Wheelchair Football divisions. Both the "Sharks" of Houston County Schools and the "Hurricanes" of Henry County Schools, in partnership with their Parks & Recreation Department, each took the titles in their respective divisions. This is significant only because these Henry and Houston teams also won the Wheelchair Handball and Wheelchair Basketball state titles this year in their divisions - literally 3 for 3.

Those who benefitted from watching the 2012-13 competitions in Georgia also know that these achievements were reached while competing against other teams in divisions in which they were particularly well matched. In fact, Houston's 45-44 win over the West Georgia Wolverines in Wheelchair Football came in the final minute of the game, following a more than 20 point drive by the Wolverines in the second half. This game was a nail biter. Henry, too, had skillfully managed to grab their titles despite the strong efforts of other teams in the Junior Varsity division.

AAASP congratulates both these teams and their coaches on their outstanding accomplishments this year, both in reaching team and Association milestones.
