Following a 46 to 41 victory on the road against Chattahoochee High School on Nov. 2, the Warriors capped off their first season under head coach Sean O’Sullivan. The team kicked off its season with a convincing 20 to 7 win over Grady High School in their rivalry game for the second-consecutive season. In a Sept. 21 homecoming game against Cambridge High School, the Warriors secured their first victory on homecoming night in 10 years by a final score of 23 to 14. With the win over Chattahoochee on Nov. 2, North Atlanta completed the season with a win-loss record of 5 wins and 5 losses, which was the team’s first .500 winning percentage or better since 2010. While they missed the playoffs this season, O’Sullivan and the Warriors still had one of the more historic seasons in school history while also laying the foundation for future success. Interviewed players were reflective about what was accomplished, and even about whether the team might have secured even more “dubs for Dubs.”

“I was super happy with how the season ended up 5-5, and I know the future for football here is going to be great.” — senior cornerback Amir Simpson

“This was my first year at North Atlanta, and from what i’ve heard the progress this year was really good. The future looks good for North Atlanta football.” junior running back T.K. Mack

“Just being able to get a new coach and still turning out a good season makes me very happy, and it was an incredible way to end my senior and final year of football.” — senior linebacker Jaden Yankey

“The season went pretty well. That last game against Chattahoochee was a huge win and a definite confidence booster.” — junior linebacker Davis Bell

“It was great to see the guys come together and leave it all on the field one last time for the seniors. We’re only going up from here.” — junior safety Jamie Hare

“The season went all right but we definitely have some things to work on this offseason. I’m excited to see where the team will be this time next year.” — junior defensive tackle Ojochilemi Okoka

“It felt great to be out there this year and have one of our most successful seasons. Some things didn’t go our way but there’s nothing we can do now except learn from them.” —  senior receiver and safety Justin Sanders

“This year was a great year for our team because we were able to accomplish more than we have in a long time, and it was a good year to end my high school career on.” — senior linebacker Andrew Robinson

“While I was only on the team for one season, it was fun to spend my Friday nights with this group of guys.” — senior kicker Nathan Kitts

“I think this year was a great year to build on in the future, and I’m excited to see what we can do as a team after a full offseason and another year under Coach O’Sullivan.” — junior quarterback Wiley Hartley

“I could not say more about this team and the work they put in this season. I love this team and I am so glad we able to send the seniors off with a win.” — head coach Sean O’Sullivan
