Atlanta Looks to Turn Corner in 2016

ATLANTA – Suffering its first winless season since 2000 a year ago, the Atlanta football program is ready to turn the page to 2016.

The Huskies aren’t far removed from their last postseason bid (2013) but have gone just 1-16 over the last two seasons and are eyeing their first winning record since 2002.

"They were young last year, got a lot of experience, they have a lot of heart and they’re dedicated. They’re ready to start winning and they want it, and it’s exciting to see that,” coach Troy Cheedie said. “I want to see them be able to play as a team, no bickering, you know, everybody has a job to do and I want to see everyone doing their job and worrying about only their job."

After graduating just one senior, the Huskies are confident they can make some noise in the North Star League Little Dipper this fall.

"I feel really excited to make a statement this year, and show the rest of the league that we have what it takes to win,” senior Bruce Lomarand said. “We have the heart and we’re not going down easy.”

Atlanta opens its season at Gaylord St. Mary on Aug. 25.
