Chaz Elder from Banneker High School… He is 6′2 180lbs safety. was sixth on the tackles with 77 and second on the team in interceptions with 5. Overshadowed by the McNeal Borthers but was one of only two sophomores to start on either side of the ball for the trojans. Already has interest from Auburn, Southern Miss, UGA, GA Tech, Alabama… Expect these interest to turn into offers soon…

Also has a chance to be the best safety to come through Banneker high school which has produced Greg Blue who was on the all decade team and Demetruce Mcneal who made All State two times…

Prather from Gordon Central is a great player, but I am fairly certain that he is a junior.

North Atlanta’s “big three”
Tyler Claytor (OL,DL) 6′2″ 245
Marcus Lee (LB,FB) 5′11″ 200 (88 tackles- 10 sacks 1 deffensive touchdown)
Stephen Wheaterly (DL,TE) 6′6″ 194 (48 tackles- 9.5 sacks 1 recieving TD)
all of these guys have been making huge impacts on the field for North Atlanta since their freshman year. They are on the verge of turning the whole program around.
