ATLANTA - Only the strong survive and for those reading, this can take comfort in knowing they survived. And the HIGH 5 Sports Team is grateful for those who did because that means they can catch all the best high school football action Friday night has to over in Georgia.
But we get some folks may be out at games or were just too busy to catch the Big Show which airs weekly Friday night at 11 p.m. all football season long. So, we compiled a recap right here. You’re welcome!
Here's a recap of the Big Show from Week Two:
