The Wildcats, who went 5-4 this season but missed out on a playoff spot on pairings night, only had 30 players come out for the team this year, 10 of them seniors.

North Fulton will seek membership into the Illinois 8-Man Football Association at the association's next meeting on January 7th at Ottawa Marquette High School. Among the other schools who are currently members include Alden-Hebron, Rockford Christian Life, Champaign Judah Christian, Milford-Cissna Park, Lake Forest Academy, Jacksonville ISD, Hanover River Ridge, and Polo. Flanagan-Cornell/Roanoke-Benson is also among other schools expected to join the league next fall.

North Fulton's departure leaves the Prairieland Black with five teams and the Lincoln Trail with crossover games to fill.
