10 Years Ago: The Camden Game

In the past decade, we've watched BC squads of varying strengths rise to thrilling victories.  There was the last-minute touchdown pass against 5th-ranked South Effingham in 2005.  The 29 unanswered scored against Glynn in 2000 after being down by over three touchdowns with little more than a quarter left to play.  Or the tough defensive stand that prevented Richmond Hill's risky 2-point conversion attempt in the waning seconds of play in 2006.  The come-from-behind wins over Wayne County in 2001 and 2002 also come to mind.

But without question, the greatest and most exciting BC victory of the 2000s came out of nowhere on the evening of September 29, 2000.  That rainy night, the Cadets, having been demoralized the week prior by a 27-3 pummeling by Wayne, pulled into Kingsland, Georgia to face what is now the strongest team in the state and probably the entire Southeast.

Stick with me as we recap this magical week in BC football history.
