Thursday Night Football for Sprayberry

For the second year in a row, the Yellow Jackets play at Pope a day before the traditional high school schedule.

Perhaps last year's game was just the appetizer.

For the second year in a row, the Pope vs. Sprayberry game will be played on a Thursday night -- tonight, in fact, at Pope's home field, 3001 Hembree Road.

And it's a big Region 7-AAAAA subdivision B game for the Greyhounds and Yellow Jackets, who will kick off a little earlier than usual as well -- at 7 p.m.

In last year's game, Sprayberry led Pope 21-6 going into the fourth quarter before the Greyhounds recovered for a 27-21 Homecoming win.

Just as last year, is being played a day early for television purposes. It is part of the Georgia High School Association's agreement with WSB-TV, which will air the contest online and on Comcast Channel 248 and Charter Channel 126.

Television coverage will be on a tape delay, beginning at 7:30 p.m. A replay will be available on WSB-TV at 1 a.m. Friday.

Pope is 4-2 and 2-0 in region play, and the Greyhounds have won four games in a row. Sprayberry is 2-4 and 1-0, following a nailbiting 24-21 win over Riverwood last week.
