All told, the nine-game slate will cover three different venues–Barron Stadium in Rome (Thursday), Georgia State Stadium (Friday ... formerly Turner Field) and Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Saturday)–and consume roughly 27 hours of live TV coverage.

Speaking of which, every game can be seen on The ATL (Channel 36), the long-running sister station of 11Alive; and of course, every game can be viewed live on 11Alive.com (along with Facebook Live).

The showcase of heralded programs include three defending state champions (Rome, Calhoun, North Gwinnett), three other state champions since 2012 (Buford, Norcross, Colquitt County) and a slew of powerhouse programs in metro Atlanta.
