South Strong. Near War Eagle Stadium a sign encourages school spirt. A sense of pride sets over the students of South Forsyth every time they walk by the sign during home games.

Girls tumble through the gym, performing their best moves in front of the watchful eyes of the judges. Boys race along the trail, imagining the moment they will be announced champions. The ball soars to the shortstop, with intricate footwork she moves over, grabbing the ball and making a clean through to first base for the out. The ball soars over the net at great speed and slams to the ground, the sound echoes through the gym and the spectators go crazy. The quarterback stands, scanning the space around him, looking for an open receiver when a body collides with his. It is a War Eagle sack, and the stands erupt with cheers. All of these sports have one thing in common, they have all ended. One with first place in state, one with second in state, and two region runners-up.
