Rumors have been circulating throughout the area that Akron North wouldn't be able to field a football team due to lack of participation.
North fans can take heart in knowing that those are exactly that - just rumors, Coach Mike Laktash said. those hoping for an easy ''W'' can stop planning.
''We got the confirmation last week from the Akron Public Schools that we are good to go,'' he said.
Numbers were a problem in July, but Coach Laktash, who is in his first year, said North has been consistently around 30 players or more through summer workouts.
