There are some great matchups in all the classifications. In 6A, on Football Fridays in Georgia we will broadcast the 10-1 Wildcats of Camden County taking on the 11-0 Roswell Hornets. Both teams have won 3 state championships, both teams are led by outstanding coaches, and both teams are loaded with talent.
