Week 6 of the 2017 Georgia high school football season brought us plenty of highlights with Warner Robins keeping their perfect season alive with a 31-9 beatdown of West Laurens highlighted by Julius Cobbs' 3 touchdowns, some weather-delayed games in Bibb and Crawford Counties that went late into the night, but still saw Peach County pick up a win over Westside, Central top Kendrick, Hawkinsville beat Crawford and Jackson beat Rutland and Macon County picking up a win over Taylor County!
If week 6 could give us all of that excitement, we can't wait to see what week 7 has in store!
We will start the night live at Cavalier Fields in Macon, home of the Mt. de Sales Cavaliers for #Tailgate13, which will air during Eyewitness News at Five and Six on 13WMAZ. The 3-1 Cavaliers will host the 4-0 Stratford Eagles in Region 7-A Private play later that night at 7:30.
Once #Tailgate13 wraps, the FFN team will hop in their cars and head out to see the best high school football that central Georgia has to offer!
