The 2016 football season closed in a true DHS fashion, a storybook ending. In the last 3 minutes of the game, the Gaels scored the final touchdown, beating rivals Dougherty Valley High School for the coveted Shillelagh. To close out the season, here are some of our favorite images from Friday’s game.
