Titans Host North Atlanta in Homecoming Game

The Northview Titans (3-2,2-1) have a home conference game against North Atlanta (3-1, 1-1) on Friday. After a devastating loss to the Johns Creek Gladiators, the Northview Titans will look to let their anger out on the Warriors. With a win this Friday, the Titans have an opportunity to put themselves in a great position to contend for playoffs. This is their goal this season, and it seems well within reach.

Their key players have been showing out this year. Travis Buchanan, Christian Watson, Colin Ferguson, and others all had a great game against Johns Creek, but it was not enough as they fell short. North Atlanta will not be an easy opponent as they have been similar to the Titans this year. Both teams need this win to put themselves in a better position in the region. Things are starting to get intense at this point in the season; tensions and emotions are high, and Northview and North Atlanta would both love to come out on top.

Senior receiver Christian Watson is confident in the Titans and believes that this year they will execute and win more.

“We have shown that we can play really well on our best days. It just has to be a good day and we will be unstoppable. I am sure that my teammates and I will prepare mentally and physically to be 100% ready for this game. We realize the importance of getting wins in region play, and we are excited. Our offense has been great, but there is always room for improvement.” Watson said.

He is right about the offense as the Northview Titans have been scoring nonstop against their opponents. This year has truly looked like a different year for the Northview Titans Football team. The team belief and confidence is unbreakable at this point.

Senior Shakur Mullings has only positive things to say about him and his team. He knows that Friday is a big day.

“It is huge. This whole week everyone at school has been waiting patiently for game day; teachers, students, faculty, everyone. We could really bring Northview High School in the spotlight with this win and we are aware of that. Now it is up to us to perform well out on the field so we can have a successful game day and enjoy the Homecoming dance on the weekend,” Mullings said.
