PODCAST: Prep Talk with Morgan Lee and Katie B. (9-27-17)

By AccessWDUN staff

Week 5 of the high school football season was a lot more of what we've come to expect: incredible individual performances (we're looking at you Coey Watson, Nick Lyles, Kaleb Crane and Clayton Dykehouse), great team wins (Commerce, Banks County, North Gwinnett, Chestatee and Jefferson), and stages set for intrigue in Week 6. 

In this week's edition of the Prep Talk podcast, AccessWDUN sports editor Morgan Lee and Katie B. discuss:

Beginning of the show: Commerce is undefeated heading into a matchup with No. 2 Prince Avenue Christian on Sept. 29, what makes this year's Tigers so good?

6- minute mark: North Gwinnett made a statement on Friday night against Mountain View that the Bulldogs are back, but in a different way than what we're accustomed to seeing.

  • Also in this segment, a look ahead to a huge region matchup with Mill Creek on Sept. 29

12-minute mark: A deserved dote-fest on Dawson County's Coey Watson

  • Also in this segment, the Tigers, even though they lost to White County, look again like a team to be reckoned with in Region 7-AAA
  • A review of Union County vs. GAC

17-minute mark: How should White County be feeling about itself going into the bye week

19:30-minute mark: A look back at the Jefferson vs. Gainesville matchup

23-minute mark: A review of Banks County's statement win

25-minute mark: Tough losses will mean big wins down the road for one area team

28:30-minute mark: A look ahead to the Sept. 29 matchups, discussion includes:

  • Mill Creek at North Gwinnett
  • North Hall at Dawson County
  • Lakeview at Athens Christian
