Coach Eric Parker is the sixth man to earn a GHSA state title as both a coach and a player.

The team made program history Saturday when it defeated Peach County 28-14 at the Georgia Dome in the Class AAA final.

The Bears used a dominating rushing attack led by Donquell Green and a strong defense to score the final 28 points in the game.

With the win, coach Eric Parker became just the sixth man to earn a GHSA state title as a player and a coach. Parker won as a player at Mitchell-Baker in 1983.

Burke County ended the year 14-1, winning the Region 3-AAA crown and its final 12 games of the season.
