North Cobb Football Team Finishes Second In NFL 7-on-7 Tournament


The North Cobb Warriors left behind their orange and blue for black as they represented the Atlanta Falcons in the 2009 NFL National 7-on-7 football tournament in Eden Prarie, Minnesota. One of 16 teams in the tournament, the Warriors took home second place overall after falling to the Glades Central (Fla.) High School team representing the Miami Dolphins.

The tournament focused exclusively on passing and allowed the players to spend part of their summer competing against other athletes. North Cobb played 11 total games against squads from across the country and even got to meet Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and head coach Brad Childress.
