ATLANTA - Things are getting real! It’s Week Six of HIGH 5 Sports and the first Friday of fall. That’s right, we’re full steam into the heart of the season. Some teams will find glory, some will soon find regional dominance, some will later find the playoffs, but for now, they’re just playing it game-by-game.
If high school football has taught us anything, it’s that anything can and will happen.
Here’s a recap of this week’s Big Show:
Play of the Week – Week 6
Looking at the play of the night (unless something better comes along)… Mount Vernon Presbyterian, pass way up the air! It looks like the ball hits the ground, but the ref calls it complete, even receiver Justin Douglas isn’t happy.
But watching it in super sloooo-mooooo, the ball goes off the receiver, off the cornerback’s heel, and into Douglas’ chest. He gets his hands under the ball and maybe we all Mr. Ref an apology because that’s the play of the night.
Great job on the replay Justin!
