Week 5: Friday Night Touchdown
Week five of the high school football season promises to be one of the best weeks so far this year on Friday Night Touchdown.
The Shaker Raiders and Stow Bulldogs won the vote on Fox8.com, and they will be the Friday Night Touchdown game of the week.
The Raiders, No. 8 on the Fox 8 Top 8, have a ton of talent and can score at will. They will be tested big time by Stow. Look for extended highlights at 11 p.m.
Kenston plays a tough game at Chagrin Falls , a place where the Tigers registered a rare loss earlier this season to NDCL.
Two small schools that always play great football are Cuyahoga Heights and Kirtland. Al Martin’s team travels to Kirtland to take on Tiger LaVerde’s Hornets. Kirtland looks like the class of its division.
Former Maple Heights head coach and current Cleveland Heights coach Jeff Rotsky will head to his old stomping grounds as his Tigers face the Mustangs.
In Stark County, Uniontown Lake is at Canton Mckinley to face the Bulldogs while it figures to be an emotional night at North Canton Hoover when the Vikings host Masillon Perry.
Former Hoover coach, the legendary Don Hertler Sr. died on Wednesday night. Some kind of tribute is expected on the field that was named in his honor two years ago. His son, Don Jr., is the current Hoover coach.
In Senate play, the No. 4 Tarblooders, of Glenville, will take on John F. Kennedy at Collinwood.
Fox 8 will be covering 30 games, so get ready for the fastest 35 minutes in high school football.
We hope you join us on FOX 8 at 11 p.m. Friday night for Week #5 of Friday Night Touchdown.
