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.
