PRHS has Game of the Week - Again!

Thanks to all of the hard work of Pirate Nation, the Porter Ridge versus Marvin Ridge football game for Friday, September 30 has been chosen as the WSOC-TV Game of the Week. This week's vote created a new record with nearly 1.5 million votes cast.

Each week WSOC chooses two marquee matchups and sets up a VOTE on the high school football page of wsoctv.com -- http://www.wsoctv.com/highschoolsports/index.html -- for viewers to ultimately choose the ‘Game of the Week’ matchup.

The winner of the ‘Game of the Week’ vote was announced Tuesday (September 27) online on the High School Football page and then during the 6 p.m. newscast Tuesday only on Channel 9.

As a result of winning the Game of the Week:

  • The two teams will be featured on High School Football Extra Friday night (September 30) at 11:35 p.m. on Channel 9 and on wsoctv.com throughout the week following the game. 
  • A WSOC-TV sports photographer will be on hand at the winning matchup to document the game as well as the great atmosphere and enduring school spirit.

This Game of the Week also features a match-up between two Big 22 nominees: PR's senior quarterback Lee McNeill and that other team's quarterback.
