On the morning of February 5, 11 North Atlanta senior athletes signed to continue their career at the collegiate level. Ranging from football to cross country, this day represented the prodigious athletic talent that increasingly comes out of North Atlanta. 

Following a 6-5 season and the school’s first playoff berth in 26 years, five Warrior football players signed to play in college. Quarterback Wiley Hartley signed to play at Campbell University in Buies Creek, N.C. Running back T.K. Mack is going to Dodge City Junior College in Dodge City, Kansas. Offensive and defensive linemen Davis Bell and Wesley both signed. Bell is playing at Mercer University in Macon and Horton is playing at Western Kentucky in Bowling Green, Ky. Defensive back Malcolm Woods signed to continue his career at Miles College in Fairfield, Ala. “No wonder this team accomplished so many of our goals,” said Hartley. “With a talented senior class like this, we were bound to have some success.”

Lacrosse had three signees who locked in their opportunity to play at the next level. Defensemen Tommy Fialkowski and James Brewer made up two of the three. Fialkowski signed to play at Bellarmine University, located in Louisville, Ky. Brewer is playing at Furman University in Greenville, S.C. The brick wall of a goalie, Larry Love, signed to play at Hampton University in Hampton, Va. “I’ve been playing with these guys for the past seven years, so it’s really exciting to see all of our dreams from eighth grade become a reality,” said Love. 

Dubs soccer standout Sam Biven signed to continue his career at Providence University in Providence, Rhode Island. Alden Sweatman, also known as “Flash,” signed to run cross country at Point University in West Point. Centerfielder Angelo Ramirez will be taking his talents to Orlando, Fla., to play for the Raiders of Seminole State College. “It’s truly an honor to be grouped up with such a talented group of individuals,” said Biven. “This class of 2020 will definitely be one to remember.” 

The 11 signees in the Class of 2020 are hoping to make a name for themselves at the next level. With the support of North Atlanta and its alumni, it doesn’t seem too far fetched that we will see a couple of these stars on TV in the near future.
