CRAWFORDVILLE, Fla. (WTXL) - This weekend, the Wakulla High School football team squares off with Spartanburg, and you watch it all on ESPN.
Wakulla is one of the few high schools every year to have their game broadcast nationally, and it's going to be a good match-up. Spartanburg is the defending AAAA Division II South Carolina State Champs, and they have a lot of good talent.
Head Coach Scott Klees said his guys are excited, ready to play, and ready to represent their hometown.
"Our home field is always packed," said Monterious Loggins, a War Eagle linebacker. "Every home game, our stands, we know for a fact it's going to be packed to the max. All the hard work that we put in ever since last year it finally gets to pay off and we're ready for it."
"We're humbled that we have the opportunity to play on national TV," said Coach Klees. "Our kids have a great chance to show what our school and our program is all about and they've worked hard to get to this point. I can only imagine what the stadium is going to be like on Saturday afternoon and it should be quite electric."
That game kicks off Saturday at 1:00 in Wakulla, and good news, as after sitting out due to injury against Wakulla, quarterback and LSU commit Felipe Franks is 100% and ready to go.
