Throughout the nine-week regular season in 2021, the IHSA and Dick’s Sporting Goods are teaming up with a new promotion for the 2021 football season.
Each week, the IHSA and Dick’s will release the Friday Night 5, a collection of the top five plays from around the state from the previous week’s games. The school that achieves the #1 play each week will receive a $250 gift certificate from Dick’s Sporting Goods for their football program.
“We need the help of players, coaches, and fans to find the best Friday Night 5 plays each week!” says IHSA spokeperson Matt Troha.
Players, coaches, and fans are welcome to submit video (must be downloadable) for consideration at FridayNight5@ihsa.org or let IHSA know via social media with the hashtag #FridayNight5.
If you witness an amazing play at a game, but don’t have the video, you can give the specifics via email or on social media (FridayNight5@ihsa.org or #FridayNight5) and IHSA will do their best to track down video of the play.
The IHSA’s team of Monday morning quarterbacks will review all the clips and reveal the Friday Night 5 each Tuesday during the season beginning on August 31.
