Friday Night Spotlight 9/1/17

Size classifications mean nothing right now. The “little guys” are knocking off the “big dudes” with consistency now, and its only week two. The rain plagued to hit the state the latter part of this week has NC scrambling to make this week’s games happen. Here’s a look at the MaxPreps.com Top 25 heading into week 2. As you’ll notice, there is already plenty of color on the board this week since many games bumped kickoff a day ahead of schedule with the looming weather. Here’s the Top 25 at each classification heading into Friday:
