MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Friday Football Fever is back for 2023! Action News 5 has you covered with the top games around the Mid-South to celebrate the return of high school football in 2023.

The Game of the Week for week 1 was Bartlett vs MUS, and the Owls put on a dominant display with a 37-0 shutout victory. MUS forced five turnovers in the first half, including two pick-sixes. Starting quarterback Brady Hughes rushed for two touchdowns, and running back Tee Perry ran one in as well.

Senior Makhi Shaw had the play of the night, with a 78-yard interception returned for a touchdown in the second quarter.

“Man getting that pick-six, it really felt like I could contribute something and carry over from last year,” said Shaw. “Getting that pick-six showed my team that we could all do it, we can all do it, we can all eat.”

“I think we made a pretty good statement in the Memphis area to stop underestimating us,” said Hughes. “I mean, we’re a pretty sound team this year. So, I’m excited to see how it goes the rest of the year.”

Other finals from Friday’s action include:

  • Fairley defeats St. George’s 46-0
  • Houston wins over Briarcrest 42-6
  • Christian Brothers beats White Station 10-7
  • Lausanne defeats MASE 42-6
