Norcross High has made it to the second round of playoffs this football season, and it's a rematch with South Gwinnett High.
The undefeated Blue Devils will compete against the Comets this Friday, Nov. 23, at Norcross High, and kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Here's what Associate Regional Editor Scott Bernarde has to say about the upcoming NHS game:
Undefeated Norcross (11-0) has been at the head of the football table in Gwinnett County in 2012. The Blue Devils, who beat Chattahoochee 34-7 last week, are ranked No. 2 and offer up a cornucopia of football prowess, from their productively balanced offense (including blue-chip RB Alvin Kamara), to their big-play defense. No. 10 South Gwinnett (9-2), 27-20 winners over Milton last week, was the surprise of Region 8-AAAAAA, but the Comets are hardly newcomers to the playoff buffet. With QB Jordan Ramey often the best athlete on the field, South tests defenses with its wide-open offensive attack.
Whichever team wins this game will play against the winner of the East Coweta/Camden County game.
Tickets for Friday's game are $12, and season tickets and student passess will not be accepted during playoffs.
