TIFTON, GA (WALB) -
No championship run is complete until the celebratory parade.
The state champion Tift County Blue Devils were back at home to celebrate with their biggest fans.
The city of Tifton stopped Tuesday to congratulate the GHSA AAAAAA boys' basketball champs.
The Blue Devils took down Wheeler Saturday night to win the title.
On Tuesday, they made their way through the town's streets to say thank you.
After that, the champs made their way to the Tifton Mall to greet family, friends, and fans, as well as sign autographs for the future Blue Devils.
Head coach Eric Holland says it's just a testament to his team's hard work.
"We tell the kids all the time at the end of the rainbow, there's a pot of gold. Keep digging, keep digging, keep digging, and eventually you'll find gold," Holland says. "That's what they did. They've been with us since the 8th grade, and they really just bought into what we were selling. They kept on, kept on, kept on until it got them a state championship title."
The win earns the Blue Devils their first state title since 1996.
