Fans of the football programs of North Paulding and South Paulding high schools nearly nabbed the chance to have an Atlanta TV station highlight their teams tonight.
A visit from WSB-TV’s Sports Zone Friday crew was in reach for the players and supporters of the Wolfpack and Spartans, but in the end, the matchup between Mount Pisgah Christian School and The Walker School just barely won the fan voting to have the ABC affiliate in attendance. The station had asked its viewers to help pick the game to be visited by the crew. Hiram High’s away game against Lithia Springs also was in the running.
The North-South game also was one of five choices for Fox 5 Atlanta’s Game of the Week, but that honor will go to Chestatee vs. Johnson-Gainesville.
Local players’ next chance to make it into the spotlight is Oct. 12, as East Paulding vs. Hiram is one of the seven games up for the next visit from the WSB-TV Sports Zone Friday crew.
You can head here to cast your votes for your favorite Oct. 12 game to be covered by WSB.
By visiting WSB-TV’s photo gallery at this link, Facebook users can vote on their favorite schools by liking the photo that represents the game of their choice, which is worth three votes; and by sharing a photo with their Facebook friends, which is worth one vote. The game that receives the most votes by noon Friday will be visited by the WSB crew.
