Football season is wrapping up, and as usual, we are supporting all of the Gwinnett teams. Gwinnett has one team still in the running, North Gwinnett High School.

Meredith Chastain & Meghan SchroderMeredith Chastain & Meghan SchroderNorth Gwinnett is headed by Coach Bill Stewart (coming over from the impressive Mill Creek). This is his first year at North Gwinnett and judging by the team’s undefeated season, he is off to a good start. Featured is his impressive and talented senior class in their spirited NG formation.

Coach Philip Jones has been the head coach at Brookwood High School since 2015. He is a native of Snellville and attended Brookwood High School. He was the captain of the 1996 state championship team. His dad, Tom, was the Offensive Line coach and interestingly, worked under the only two coaches in the school’s history. His brother, Tommy, is currently the head coach at Dacula. Coach Jones’ family - Allyson and children Naomi, Hannah, Katherine and Thomas show their Bronco support every week. Brookwood is deeply rooted in tradition, and we are big fans of their program.

The youth leagues have officially wrapped up their football season. The competition to win the Gwinnett Football League (GFL) championship is taken almost as seriously as the state competition. Grayson is always a serious competitor and this year had five teams represented in the final. Coach Andy Chafin’s team won in the 12 and under age group. I sensed on picture day that this team’s intensity and strong coaching was going to take them far. Picture Perfect Photography

Father, Donnie, was the head principal of Dacula High School for years and is now in behavior/discipline for the county. Mom, Darenda, ended her career working at Dacula Middle School. Unsurprisingly the kids followed in their footsteps. Bride and daughter Brittany teach at Woodward Mill and brother, Casey, is currently teaching at Discovery High School. Casey, following family tradition, is engaged to Hailey Powell, a teacher at Berkmar High School. With families like this committed to the education of Gwinnett student’s, our children are in great hands.

Brookwood always runs a smooth, organized media day headed by head basketball Coach Daniel Bowles. It helps that his wife is there keeping things on track in her role as the head cheerleading coach, Amy. They make a great team!

Over at Mill Creek, Varsity basketball player Kendall Latney showed his enthusiasm for the upcoming season by creating his own pose for picture day. Kendall is averaging 11 points per game this season in helping to take the team to a winning start. Picture Perfect Photography

As we head into the holiday break, schools are asking Santa for winning seasons and we at Magic Moment are asking for some adorable Christmas with Santa pictures!
