The 2012 high school football season was special in numerous ways.
Three area teams claimed state championships, two for the first time -- one after years of knocking on the door.
For Gainesville football, seven was indeed a magic number, as the Red Elephants' seventh attempt at a GHSA crown finally yielded triumph, as Gainesville stomped Ware County 49-13 in the Class AAAAA finale at the Georgia Dome.
On the day when the Red Elephants were honor their historic achievement -- a parade and ceremony originally scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at Bobby Gruhn Field has been postponed due to inclement weather -- we at Access North Georgia.com would like to take a few minutes to salute their accomplishments with Gainesville: The Championship.
To watch this special video produced by Scott McIntyre and Access North Georgia sports editor Morgan Lee -- which chronicles the 2012 season and includes player and coach interviews, as well as highlights from throughout the campaign -- simply scroll down and click "play."
