Blake Sims found a new way into the end zone for Gainesville in its state semifinal game against Flowery Branch. On the opening kick off of the second half, and trailing 14-0, Sims returned the kick 96 yards for a Red Elephants' touchdown.
The drive, the play, the comeback. Three things that will forever be talked about when referencing Friday's Class AAA state semifinal game between the top-ranked Gainesville Red Elephants and the Flowery Branch Falcons.
After announcing the new class desiginations last month, the Georgia High School Association moved forward in the next phase of reclassification, slotting teams into regions during Wednesday's meeting in Thomaston.
