Athlete Of The Week: Northside Patriots


Columbus, GA – Well Northside’s dramatic 20-19 come from behind win over Spencer was one for ages. While it was a team effort, four players were instrumental in making it happen. They include quarterback Chandler Blanton who threw the pass, Jerry Adams who went up high to tip the ball and Fred Davis who caught the tip. Cade Werner then came in to kick the PAT for the 20-19 win.

“It’s just a Hail Mary. We’ve practiced it a little bit so our guys understand where they’re supposed to be. Where we’d like the ball to land. What we’d like our jumper to be and where we want our guys to be to catch the tip. It’s still a luck thing. We can execute as well as we can but the ball still has to fall our way,” said Northside head coach Dave Nurnberg.

The Patriots have no time to continue celebrating because their next matchup is against the Cairo Syrupmakers.

“We know that while we were happy to get away with the win last week. We have to be better as a team going forward if we’re going to compete with Cairo this week.”

Congratulations to the Northside Patriots football team, our Cody Road Trophies and Jewelers PrepZone Athletes of the Week.
