It certainly doesn’t get any easier from week to week in Region 8-AAAAA.
The Apalachee High School football team can attest to that. After facing Top 10 foe Gainesville last week, the Wildcats welcome perennial power Clarke Central for a rare Thursday night game at 7:30 p.m. WSB TV will spotlight the AHS campus and football program as its Game of the Week broadcast Thursday.
“I’m old school and always want our players to be creatures of habit,” Wildcat coach Shane Davis said of the different play day. “I’m not one for change, but in the end of the day this will be good for our program, our school and our region. It puts us in the spotlight for a night. It’s hard to say ‘no’ to something like this when you look at the big picture.”
