Summary:
               
Addison became the first team to win championships in two different classes as they captured the Class 1A title after claiming the Class 2A championship in 1970. Addison fell behind early but it wasn't something new as they had trailed the past three games only to come back and win.
                Addison capped off a perfect 14-0 season and handed Brantley their only loss in 14 games. Brantley scored first on a 11 play 66 yard drive when Dorsey scampered 22 yards for a touchdown. Addison came right back to score when quarterback Greg Wiggins hit Brent Chandler with a 21 yard strike 3:57 before halftime.
                Following a third quarter touchdown Addison went 46 yards in eight plays to take a 14-6 lead when fullback Tyler Hayes scored from the seven on the first play of the fourth quarter. Joe Hulsey intercepted another Brantley pass returning it to the Brantley 10 yard line. Hayes scored three plays later and with two minutes remaining Addison could begin the celebration.
               Dorsey was the game's leading rusher with 92 yards on 18 runs while Hayes gained 74 yards on 20 trips.
