Callaway searching for first-ever state championship


Callaway, Ga. — The Callaway Cavaliers have made the playoffs 12 years in a row under 13-year head coach Pete Wiggins.

Last year, the Cavs went 11-2 and lost in the quarterfinals. But this season they have a chance to make an even deeper run with 25 seniors, the most Wiggins has ever had at Callaway.

“There’s a lot of them that are inexperienced and even though they played for four years we had a big senior class last year. Not in numbers but in guys that played for three years,” Wiggins said. “There will be a lot of new faces on the field this year.”

The only year Callaway hasn’t made the playoffs under Wiggins was his first season in 2005. Despite their playoff consistency, the Cavs have never won a state title.

To help get that state title, Wiggins created a tougher schedule starting with an opening game against the Opelika Bulldogs on Aug. 17 at Callaway.
