TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) — The Madison County football program is a special one. Everyone knew that heading into Saturday night's Class 1A State Championship game against Blountstown. The Cowboys would go on to win 70-35 victory and put a stamp on an already special season. This senior class goes out with a 50-4 record over the last four seasons with back to back to back State Championships.

Cowboys senior quarterback, Vinsonta Allen said "It's a tradition man. It's just a blessing. To say we're three time State Champions, we put a lot of work in. 50-4, these seniors put a lot of work in."

Zane Herring, a tackle for the cowboys added, "It hasn't sunk in, probably on the bus ride home. It is crazy to think. I mean, I'm just a small town kid from Madison County and this is just crazy being able to make history. I've always wanted to be a cowboy, and it happened and I made history. This is surreal."

Madison County head coach Mike Coe called the atmosphere from both sides 'electric.' "This is what high school football should be about," said Coe. "If you're asking me, I know it's not the biggest venue but it was packed. What a show for the people in North Florida.
