2021 Tackle Football

In 1951, Georgia Sports Hall of Fame Coach, Bob Blackwell created a football team of thirteen young boys from North Atlanta. This small football squad, called the Red Devils, would evolve into one of the largest, intra-park football programs in the entire country. Today, Northside Youth Organization’s football program boasts nearly 700 players from Kindergarten through 7th grade. Thousands of boys through the years have played at NYO and learned both football and life lessons. Many of our NYO Football alumni recall some of their fondest memories as youngsters occurring on the fields at Chastain Park.
