ATLANTA - What can we say about this past week? Irma got all up in our faces, but we survived the week because only the strong survive.
There were 17 games profiled this week on the Big Show. Hopefully, you had the power on so you could watch, but if you didn’t we got your recap of Week 5 right here:
Play of the Night
This week’s play comes from Jonesboro's Matavion Brooks who received a kick against the Tucker Tigers. Mr. Brooks was gone… goodbye! See you! He made a 95-yard “Feet Don’t Fail Me Now” return for the touchdown.
Brooks took one back against Tucker and he came up with this week’s High 5 Play of the Night.
