The Friday Night Lights will turn on throughout the Land of Lincoln on August 26 as Illinois high school football action returns in full around the state.
Throughout the nine-week regular season in 2022, the IHSA, Undeniably Dairy, and DICK’S Sporting Goods are teaming up to once again bring fans the best highlights from around the state via the Friday Night Five.
Each Tuesday, the IHSA will release a collection of the top five plays from around the state from the previous week’s games, culminating with the Undeniably Dairy Play of the Week. The school that achieves the #1 play each week will also 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!
Players, coaches, and fans are welcome to submit video (must be downloadable) for consideration at FridayNight5@ihsa.org or let us know via social media with the hashtag #FridayNight5.
If you witness an amazing play at a game, but don’t have the video, just give us the specifics via email or on social media (FridayNight5@ihsa.org or #FridayNight5) and we will do our best to track down video of the play.
Our team of Monday morning quarterbacks will review all the clips and reveal the Friday Night 5 each Tuesday during the season beginning on August 30.
