GFC Champions: North Georgia Falcons
11/2/2016 ~ by Roger McDaniel
The Falcons beat the East Atlanta Mustangs 18-0 to become the 2016 GFC Football League State Champions. The Falcons scored to make it 6-0 in the first quarter on a short run by Trey Baker. In the second quarter, Josiah France scored on a short run to make the score 12-0. In the 3rd quarter, linebacker George Mitchell picked up a fumble and took it to the house, giving the Falcons the margin of victory 18-0.
A mere three weeks ago, The Falcons lost their starting quarterback, Gadi Gonzalez, to injuries. Sophomore/JV quarterback Ben Harrison stepped in and assumed the position of starting quarterback. He did a great job leading the Falcons to the championship win. After the last season game, the Falcons also lost their starting center leaving the JV center, Joe Johnson to assume the responsibility. This young man did a great job in the championship game for the Falcons.
We are very proud of this 2016 NG Falcon Football team!
