The Atlanta Kookaburras were shocked and saddened recently by passing of former player Michael Johns. Mike who played around a dozen games for the Kookaburras in the 2000-2002 era was close friends with many people around Atlanta where he went to school, played tennis and started his music career.
His music talents led him to being a finalist on American Idol in 2007 and become known to thousands as the friendly Aussie larrikin guy we already knew.
The Kookaburras again take this opportunity to pass on their condolences to Mike's family, his closest friends, many of which are former Kookaburra players and all the people he touched with his fantastic talent and loving spirit.
The Kookaburras will pause for a moments silence prior to their game against Nashville to reflect on losing one of our own.

The Local AARFL 2014 season kicked off on Saturday at Garrard Landing Park in Roswell. Fine sunny conditions greeted past and new players alike. It was Midtown v Roswell/Western Combine and scoring was plentiful early on with Midtown showing the ascendency. With Carson Olsheski rucking in the middle the Bombers dominated center bounces with Josh Trombley capitalizing many tap outs whilst for Roswell, veteran Wayne Kraska was able to shark a couple.
The backlines were solid for both teams with Curtis Jones and Travis Quigley back in Atlanta, shoring up things for Midtown and Justin Willmott and Mike Frost doing the same for Roswell. At the main break however Roswell had stuck their noses in front on the scoreboard leading 4.5.29 to Midtown 4.2.26.
