ATLANTA - Hey! Wake up! September is ending! And can you believe we are actually in Week Seven? Where has this season gone? Well, don’t worry, there is plenty more high school football action left this year, but for now, we hope these highlights from this week’s show will tide you over.
Every year, we choose one week to show an #INYOURFACE salute to the first responders. This was the week. It's our way of thanking them for all they do for us.
Here’s a recap of this week’s Big Show:
Play of the Night - Week Seven
The folks who tuned into the 10 p.m. Preview Show on Facebook.com/HIGH5Sports every Friday got a sneak peak of the Play of the Night. It was from the Douglas County-New Manchester game. And it featured Douglas County's Uriah West breaking tackle after tackle. But did he have the feet to get to the end zone? Feet don’t f... Ah, we don’t want to spoil it.
