Ingo led his alma mater to the VHSL Group A Division 1 championship, 29 years after he was a twoway starting lineman on a George Wythe team that lost in the Group AA final. The Maroons won their sixth straight Hogoheegee District title, then they blanked defending state champion Clintwood 7-0 in a quarterfinal. Wythe knocked off unbeaten Franklin on the road in the semifinals and topped Honaker 17-10 in the final to finish 14-1.
