    Tide pride
    I’m calling to say I am proud of the Galax football team. They had a very great year. Even though they came up short at the end, I know they did their best, and that is all that anybody in this town can ever ask for. State runner-up is a very good honor, 14-1 is our best season ever, and overall our school has had a very good sports year. I hope everybody is proud of your Galax Maroon Tide.
