There’s no denying what challenge awaits the Apalachee High School football team Friday.
The Wildcats (1-1 overall) will play their first Region 8-AAAAA contest when they venture to No. 7-ranked Gainesville High School. The Red Elephants dismantled Winder-Barrow High School 69-0 last Friday and appear set to make plenty of noise in their first season in AAAAA.
“They are as good as everyone has heard,” AHS coach Shane Davis said. “In the last few years they have been very good and this year is no exception.”
