After an exciting week of football that saw Jones County top Washington County 41-19, Southwest beat Westside for the second year in a row, Peach Co. knock off Houston Co. 44-14 and Mary Persons get a win over Jackson in the Backyard Brawl, we are ready for another awesome week of high school football action!
We will start the evening live at Peach Co. High School in Fort Valley for #Tailgate13, which airs on Eyewitness News at 5 and 6 on 13WMAZ! The Trojans will be hosting the 2-0 Warner Robins Demons, who are coming off of wins over Northside and Locust Grove. Peach Co. is 1-0 after their win over Houston Co. The Trojans and Demons will then square off at 8 p.m.
Once the shows end, the Football Friday Night crew will hop in our cars and head out to see the best high school football central Georgia has to offer!
Here's where you will be able to find our reporters Friday night:
- Manchester at Southwest
- Bulloch at Westfield
- Warner Robins at Peach Co.

And, as always, we will also be keeping our eyes on the rest of the central Georgia teams taking the field on Friday night.
And be sure to stick around after Eyewitness News at 11 for Football Friday Night! Frank Malloy, Ben Jones, Marvin James and Jonathan Perez will take us through the highlights of the 11 games listed above along with showing us the rest of the nights scores on the Zaxby's Scoreboards, introducing us to the Chevrolet Fans of the Week, quizzing us with the Jeff Smith Automotive Quiz Question and Answer and showing us the McDonald's Ribrocker and the Central Georgia Technical College Play of the Week!
