2020: 6-4 (3rd in 6AAA) 1st Rd Playoffs
2021 Outlook: The Mountaineers have a Senior and three Junior returning starters on the OL in 2021. Good news for returning Junior QB Seth Griffin (6’3 185) who had a breakout year in 2020 and is poised to be one of the top QBs in his class in NwGa , if not the State, before his time at North Murray is done. The Mountaineers will have to replace several key spots in the skill positions. Dante Tidwell (Army) and Cade Petty (Berry) will be tough to replace but they have several talented young guys ready to step up. Rising Sophomore Judson Petty and Senior Michal McDade caught our attention last year and curious how they will fit into the offense in 2021.
Defensively North Murray was young in 2020 and will return a lot on that side of the ball. With a year under their belt they should be much improved in 2021. The secret weapon for the Mountaineers is rising Senior kicker Owen Hannah who is one of the top kickers in Georgia for 2021.
NwGaTake: Coach Poag has taken the Mountaineers to 5 straight playoff appearances with a Region Title thrown in his time at North Murray. 6AAA looks as competitive in 2021 as any season I can remember. Graduation took a toll on most teams in the Region and it will be fun to see how the young guys respond in their new starting roles. North has an advantage in returning their QB but he will need some skill guys to step up this Spring and Summer to help him out. I think they get back to the playoffs for a 6th consecutive season. Which spot is up for grabs.
Prediction: 4th in 6 AAA
