ATLANTA - The votes are in and the North Atlanta High School Warriors are our first 2017 High 5 Sports Team of the Week!
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken helped the team celebrate Thursday morning with a huge pep rally at NAHS. At the pep rally, the Warriors received the coveted Hand Trophy because their fan base out-voted four other schools on the High 5 Sports Facebook page for the honor.
The Warriors matched their entire win total from last season (one) with an impressive 21-7 victory over perennial 6-AAAAA power Grady last Friday night.
High 5 Sports visited the team two weeks ago as part of our annual high school football caravan, and at that time it appeared spirit was on the rise at the APS high school known for its fine arts programs.
The student section recently created a Twitter account, @NAHSStudentSec with the sole purpose of supporting North Atlanta athletics. The students dubbed their section the "War Zone."
