When last we left the Vikings they were busy hoisting a the big gold trophy that signifies you are the state champions. Today it was back to the grindstone for one of the area's premier prep programs.. Northside got started with two-a-days, the 24-10 demolition of James Monroe for the Group 3A crown now in the rearview mirror.
The architect--Coach Burt Torrence will now try to build back to back title squads..and the third in his reign. That despite basically losing a small village of players to the college level. He reminded us that we(the media)love to focus on the offensive stars but at Northside it all starts with defense.
Coach Torrence will have a couple of key players to replace--including college bound quarterback Dom Dunnaville(Josh Hardister is the man)--and running back Sam Krizner(Corey Williams in the next in line). Star defensive lineman Chance Hall returns, he's already committed to play at Tennessee after this, his senior season.
