Highlights included: In a season with few highlights early on, it was the play of defensive captain Ben Mooney that drew most of the attention of local media. The senior linebacker would go on to be named the Evansville Courier's Defensive Player of the Year and www.nhsrecords.com PLAYER OF THE DECADE.
Having concluded the season 0-8, QB Chris Berry led North to a 10-0 victory over Boonville in the sectional opener. The Huskies intercepted four Boonville passes in the game (2 by Berry, another by Hank Wheeler, and a fourth by another team mate). The opportunistic defense combined with a 70 yard Punt Return for a TD by sophomore Karl Armstead and Berry's 47 yard field goal to give North it's first victory of the season.
In the sectional second round game, North was tied with Bosse 14-14 (the Bulldogs had beaten North 40-7 in the regular season) late in the fourth quarter. Berry rushed 20 times for 78 yards during regulation, but on a critical 3rd and 1 deep in Bosse territory, the officials made what according to the Evansville newspapers was a questionable fumble call. Bosse was awarded the ball and drove into North territory in the waning seconds and kicked a game winning field goal.
DEFENSE--2 pts each for solo, cause or recover fumble, sack, int, blk kick; 1 pt each for assist and tackle for loss
