Nobody knows the history of high school football in Georgia better than my broadcast colleague Jon Nelson. During our broadcast warmup scrimmage between Walton & Norcross, Jon offered his insight.

To get you pumped up for the season, I got inside the huddle with Walton Head Coach Rocky Hidalgo as he prepped his power-house team.

The Walton Raiders are ready! Are YOU ready for the best high school football in the state of Georgia? You'll only find it here on GPB!
