Through three weeks of the high school football season surprises abound: White County and Jackson County are complete teams, The Branch is back, Gainesville is not, and Union County is unstoppable.
In the fourth installment of the Prep Talk podcast with Morgan Lee and Katie B. we discuss:
Beginning of the show: Where did Morgan's goatee go to? Also, Georgia fans need to chill with thinking Jake Fromm is better for the team than Jacob Eason.
6-minute mark: Week 2 of the season was one for the record books, especially in Blairsville, where Union County produced the program's third-highest scoring output in a 60-7 win against Hayesville, N.C.
9-minute mark: Sept. 1 was full of litmus test matchups, who passed and who didn't? Matchups include:
- Lakeview vs. Athens Academy
- Rabun County vs. Stephens County
- Jefferson vs. Thomson

17-minute mark: They're growing them big in Jackson County and the Panthers are taking advantage
