Only three weeks left in the 2017 high school football season…

Who knew…??? Absolute surprise…

But everything we thought we knew about week one of the playoffs went to the wayside in week two as TWO overall top seeds were knocked out of the playoffs entirely…

Lowndes gave up a lead and lost at home to McEachern and Cartersville loses to Blessed Trinity… absolute stunners across the board…
