For the first time in its 47-year history, Dunwoody High School hosted an organized football game on campus. Chalk it up as a success.
Up till now, the Wildcats played their home games at North DeKalb Stadium in Chamblee.
This past Friday night, Dunwoody routed neighboring North Springs 42-7 in its spring football scrimmage as Davis LeDoyen threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns, and J. Norris Neel returned an interception 97 yards for a score.
Thanks to the newly installed lighting system on the high school football field, courtesy of the school’s Game On capital campaign, the Wildcats were able to make history before a gathering of approximately 750 fans. Dunwoody also plans to play its August pre-season game against Wesleyan under the lights at the high school.
