A parade was held in Pahokee to honor a local undefeated football team Saturday.

The Pahokee Blue Devils won all 14 of their games this season.

The parade took place on Main Street and featured the team, Fire Rescue vehicles and even Santa.

Pahokee's Mayor Keith Babb said the Blue Devils' big win is not only one for the team, but for the community.

"Anytime you have a winning tradition and you win it just brings everyone together.  There's some differences in the community, as all communities are. But when you're winning all of that is put aside," Babb said.

The parade was followed by a community rally at Pahokee High School.
