ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Players and coaches on a championship football team got a free meal at Chick-Fil-A Thursday night to celebrate a "Day of Champions."

Mayor Willie Adams and city manager Al Lott presented the Deerfield-Windsor football team with a plaque and trophy to honor their state championship.

Chick-Fil-A provided a free meal.  The restaurant wanted to thank the team for representing Albany so well.

"It helps the city in the number of ways because when we have schools in this area that become state champions, it actually brings recognition to the city. And, it's our way of showing our appreciation for the work that they've done," said Lawrence Knighton, Chick-Fil-A Sales Executive.

Last year, Chick-Fil-A's "Day of Champions" honored the Monroe High track team for its state championship.
