Friday Night Lights Returns My Week in Sports - Week of August 14, 2017

I've been looking forward to this week all summer. The return of Friday Night Lights.

I'm not going to lie...I love Friday Night Lights.

Football wasn't the only sport I shot for the week. For the second week in a row, I shot Allatoona Volleyball but this time, focused on the Junior Varsity team.

If you've never attended a Volleyball game, make plans to attend one soon!

Friday, August 18, 2017 was Allatoona's season opener against Cartersville High School.

12 miles separate Allatoona High School Buccaneers from Cartersville High School Purple Hurricanes but they're not in the same county or same classification.

The pre-game energy is intense and along with the humidity, you could feel it in the air.
