Trinity Presley,a third grader, and her dad Wayne readied their banner for the Saturday morning send-off. The family recently relocated to Jefferson and already has the town spirit.

The Jefferson Dragons got a special sendoff Saturday morning as two charter buses rolled out of the parking lot of Memorial Stadium.

The Georgia Dome-bound football team, with Jefferson Police escort, left the stadium and found Memorial Drive and a stretch of Highway 11 lined with supporters holding up banners and signs showing off encouragement and pride including “One Time,” “Domeward Bound” and “Dome Sweet Dome.” Many fans sported “We Believe” blue T-shirts while other wore Jefferson Dragons attire and one carried a “Cal-who?” sign.

The morning air was crisp and the atmosphere was one of excitement.

Cindy Burch waved a “We Believe” sign and Donald Burch had a “Dome Bound” post presented by a Jefferson Dragon cheerleader.

Proud parents, grandparents and other family members and friends were sporting buttons featuring photos of their favorite players. Dalton Hill’s mother was sporting a T-shirt featuring a published photo of #7 on a play during the season. Her vehicle also had words of encouragement along with banners lined up along the ground.

Trinity Presley and her dad Wayne were putting the finishing touches on their poster on the tailgate of his truck before the entourage of Dragons headed out for the Dome, after a stop for breakfast at Beef O’Brady’s.
