ATLANTA - It’s hard to believe that we’ve already moved into double-digits on the number of weeks in this season. Soon we will be pulling out brackets and eliminating half the teams each week until there is just one in each class. Sure we’ve still got a little way to go, but first, we should talk about this week.
Regional action continues across the state as teams set up the final push towards the top. For the teams, that means a possible second season in the playoffs, for us, it means more #INYOURFACE action!
Here’s a look at what happened this week on the Big Show:
Play of the Night
The Play of the Night for Week Ten comes from the Elbert County-Rabun County game. The Wildcats’ Bailey Fisher finds Braxton Hicks and this will, of course, cause serious contractions if you’re on the Elbert Defense. Braxton Hicks goes 69-yards for a Rabun County touchdown.
