Troup Excitement

"This is a huge deal, this hasn't happened since 1973 when I was in the third grade," say Tracye Martin.

In Troup, it's a dream 31 years in the making. The Troup Tigers are finally going back to state and the town just can't contain it's pride.

"This is just something we've been waiting for a long time. And the state championship is a once in a lifetime event," says Dianne Hamilton.

They've got signs, banners, they even decorated their cars. In Troup, everyone is a tiger fan. Downtown, the hot spot for tiger cheer is the Hot Spot Salon. There you can get noise makers, sweatshirts, and more!

At the pizza parlor, it's all anyone can talk about.

"They've just been like flipping out. They're all excited we're making it and stuff," says Ashton a team water girl.

Tiger fever has taken Troup over. The whole town is going to the game.

"There won't be a light on in Troup Saturday night," says Karen Agnew.

Everyone wants to be there when Troup wins it all and becomes the state champs.
