War of the Border, round two
Round two of the War of the Border between Georgia and Florida is set for Friday night in Moultrie.
Georgia's team won the first game of the series last week, 31-24.
This week's group comes from the west side of the I-75 and includes the Albany schools, Colquitt County, Worth County, and many others. Tift County coach John Reid is the head coach.
The goal of the border game is to help some of the under-recruited talent get noticed.
"It's a different atmosphere when you're out here, because you've got so many different players out here," said Tift County quarterback Ryan Wedgeworth. "They're all great athletes, so it's pretty much like playing at a small college."
But winning is also a priority.
"The scoreboard's gonna be on and we want to represent Georgia," said Reid.
Kickoff is set for 8 P.M. at Mack Tharpe Stadium in Moultrie. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children.
