ATLANTA (AP) -- Thomas Wilson and Joshua Thomas each had two touchdown runs as Buford stormed back from a 13-point deficit to defeat Washington County 35-19 for the Georgia Class AAA state championship Friday night at the Georgia Dome.
It was the sixth title in seven years and 10th overall for Buford (15-0), which set a state record for points in a season with 707 -- 47.1 per game.
Wilson, who finished with 118 yards on 14 carries, had a 21-yard touchdown run to put Buford ahead early the third quarter. He also scored from 35 yards out with eight minutes left.
Thomas had a 16-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter and a 5-yard touchdown with less than two minutes remaining that clinched it for the Wolves. Thomas ran 14 times for 94 yards.
Washington County (14-1) closed to within 28-19 on a 64-yard touchdown pass from A.J. Gray to D. J. Sanders. Gray completed 16 of 30 passes for 231 yards, but was sacked four times.
