Preview 2003: North Gwinnett

<b>North Gwinnett</b> finished 7-4 on the season and made it to the playoffs last year. The Bulldogs are a young but talented team.

North Gwinnett was a very talented team in a very tough region. They finished 7-4 on the year and lost to Harrison in the first round of the playoffs. North Gwinnett must replace some very talented players in Chris Green, David Hines, Roderick McCord, and Alan Crain, but the Bulldogs are still a relatively young team, and will have a lot of talent coming back.

The bulk of North Gwinnett's roster lies in its junior class. The Bulldogs have 41 players in the class of 2005. Coach Jim Hammontree's squad will not be without and senior leadership though. Linebacker Jason Cook will spearhead the defensive, and Daniel Nabors and Todd Reeves will help man the secondary.

On offense, the line will be anchored by returning starters Ade Omi and Titus Wood. They helped lead a powerful rushing attack last year for the bulldogs, and they will be counted on heavily with the loss of RB David Hines and FB Alan Crain.

With 41 juniors on the roster, the best days may be ahead for North Gwinnett, but they should not be discounted this year, as Coach Hammontree always has his kids well prepared.
