Prep Talk | Your Football Friday Primer

November 2, 2012 

Think a few high school football teams are a little revved up for tonight?

The Class AAA-A playoffs kick off at 7:30 p.m., and seven area teams have their shot at making postseason runs. Included in that mix is Socastee, Myrtle Beach, Georgetown, Andrews, Aynor, Waccamaw and Carvers Bay. Next week, Loris - which received a first-round bye in the Class AA playoffs - will join the mix.

That's also not pointing out that Week 11 of the regular season is tonight for Conway and Carolina Forest. With a win and some help from West Florence, the Tigers can win Region VI-AAAA.

* The Seahawks' game against Manning is also our Grand Strand Game of the Week.

* Keep an eye on fellow Myrtle Beach defensive back Jack Montgomery. He's our player to watch, and for good reason.

* Here are the game capsules for the other seven games involving area teams.

* The Grand Strand Power Rankings remained relatively unchanged from last week.
