After a disappointing 2006 campaign, North Cobb High has bounced back in a big way.
And as the 2007 season continues towards the state playoffs, a team that just a year ago was fighting for a playoff berth is now solidifying itself as a team to look out for when postseason action kicks off next month.
The Warriors enter Friday night's game against Etowah with an unblemished record. At 8-0 overall and 7-0 in Region play, North Cobb looking to remain undefeated and enact a little revenge against an Eagles team that defeated them 41-20 last November.
The Warriors are averaging 35.5 points per game thanks in large part to the play of three-star quarterback Matt Roark. The talented signal caller is added by an offensive depth chart that features a stout wide receiver corps, tailback Calvin Middleton and Ohio commitment and two-star offensive lineman Matt Britain.
As it turns out, Roark knew before the season even started just how potent his team's offensive attack would be.
"We have a lot of talent on offense," Roark said in a previous interview with Scout.com
Etowah (6-2 overall, 4-2 Region) hasn't been the offensive presence that North Cobb has been this year but has been impressive on defense.
Paced by two-star defensive tackle Elliot Williams, the Eagles are allowing just 8.4 points per game.
