After the close defeat of South Aiken at our last home game on November 6, our Jackets have made it, yet again, to the playoffs. “I’m excited for the oportunity to win state,” said Jarett Kelly, a sophmore on the team. The students also are excited to cary out the season with more spirit and Jacket pride. “I’m so proud and excited that the team has made it this far and I hope they do well in the playoffs ,” Ashlyn Bolen told us upon hearing the news of the Jackets latest accomplishment.

It is practically a Yellow Jacket Football tradition to make it to playoffs. In fact, we have made it to playoffs for the last ten years. Students are more than prepared to support our boys as they storm into their first game  and give it their all. Britt Thomas, a varsity player, expressed his thoughts, “If we play to our highest level and play as a team, I feel like we have a chance to go a long way.”

The North Augusta football program has endured some changes over the past two years with the arrival of our new head coach, Coach Thomas.  The plays have been changed, as well as the way the game is played, for the most part. When a new coach comes, change comes. But obviously, this change is not effecting the playing of our boys too much.  Both years with Thomas we have made it to the playoffs.

North Augusta’s football is a tradition that citizens hold onto with tight grasps. “Going to football games is one of my favorite things to do,” said Allison Hendrick. With a fanbase as amazing as North Augusta’s, there is no way this playoff season won’t be something to watch and enjoy. The first game will be this upcoming Friday, November 20, against Blythewood.
