Georgia’s high school football season officially begins Saturday with the Corky Kell Classic – five back-to-back games at the Georgia Dome. It’s a tough time for several communities where football players have died in recent weeks. Jon Nelson from GPB Sports talks about those teams and looks at season ahead.
The lone survivor in a south Georgia crash that killed three high school football players has returned home. De'Vron Whitfield was one of four high school football players in an SUV that slammed into a tree near Quitman. The other three teens — Jicarre Watkins, Johnie Parker and Shawn Waters — died in the crash.
