ATLANTA — Cam Newton is bringing some of the best high school football teams from around the region to face off in Atlanta this weekend, and there's only one place to watch it: 11Alive's digital platforms.
First up was Cam's alma mater, the Westlake Lions. Friday night, they took on Jefferson Davis High from Alabama.
Westlake beat Jeff Davis 30 to 14.
The Lions captured the night and remained in the lead for the majority of the game. The clock stopped a few times as staff tended to Jefferson Davis players who went down on the field.
Their coach told us during halftime that their senior quarterback dislocated his patellar tendon, but he would be fine. They also had a few players catch cramps.
In the end, Westlake dominated the game, leading them to victory.
Cam spoke to 11Alive saying he hosts the showcase to put a spotlight on children who love the game.
"We want to open up their eyes so the can dream and see what the next level is," he said.
There are three games on Saturday at Lakewood Stadium:
2 p.m.: Griffin vs. Fairfield (Ala.)
5 p.m.: Mays vs. Carver (Ala.).
8 p.m.: Cedar Grove vs. Central (Phenix City, Ala.)
