Since taking-over as the head football coach of the North Gwinnett Bulldogs in 2017, Bill Stewart has kept the program consistently in the High School Football America 100 national rankings. On Thursday, Stewart was saluted by the Atlanta Falcons as the team’s Week 3 Coach of the Week.

North Gwinnett is currently ranked No. 3 in the High School Football America Georgia Top 25 after a 21-0 shutout of former No. 2 Parkview last weekend. Look for the Bulldogs to be nationally ranked when we release our first High School Football America 100 for the 2020 regular season on October 4.
