High school kickoff is days away... and Friday Game Night is getting ready

By AccessWDUN Staff

Pads are already popping on practice fields across northeast Georgia, and the final preparations are under way. High school football is so close, you can just about it touch it.

We can almost start counting the hours now until the start of the 2017 prep gridiron season.

It's been a long time since the 2016 campaign ended at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, and we know so many of you -- and us -- have waited with baited breath for the start of the next season.

Well, it's almost time. But before things get going, you're going to want to know all the specifics -- the who, what, when, where, etc... and to do that look no further than AccessWDUN's Friday Game Night page.

In just 12 days, Friday Game Night will bring you in-depth previews for high school football in northeast Georgia. We'll highlight 30 programs around the area, bringing you a comprehensive look at what to expect for the 2017 season, including players to watch, can't-miss games and a full line-up of schedules.

We know you're excited. We are too.
