Prep football, Week 2: Teams looking to develop patterns for season

By Morgan Lee Sports Editor
It may only be the second week of the season for most of the area's prep football teams -- the first for some and the third for a few others -- but those teams are already looking to establish patterns of success for the remainder of the campaign.

Those teams that won in Week 1 are looking to consolidate and build on their victories, while those that lost are looking to bounce back and find their rhythm before region and playoff races begin to take shape in week 3.

For a look at the games throughout our area, simply scroll down. And be sure to check back with Access North Georgia through the night and on our twitter account -- @AccessNGASporrts -- for up-to-date scores and stats for Week 2 contests.
