McGill-Toolen grabbed the championship trophy in the 48-team tournament, featuring teams from twelve different states, when wide receiver Jalen Tolbert caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Bubba Thompson in the final minute of the title game to seal a 19-10 victory.

The Yellow Jackets needed to beat Park Crossing twice after they lost to Park Crossing in the winner’s bracket championship game earlier in the day in the double-elimination tournament.
