News 13's 2017 season of Friday Football Frenzy is officially underway and our first Game of the Week is Reynolds versus Southern Durham.

The Rockets are coming off a stellar 11 and 3 season, and with eight starters back on both offense and defense, they should be in contention for another Western Mountain Athletic Conference Title.

However, the team's mindset is one game at a time, and even though they're an experienced bunch -- first game jitters are always present.

"I feel good about our team. I'd like to have about two more weeks, but I feel good about this group of guys," Coach Shane Laws said. "This is a group of kids that's worked hard. I think they're ready to play football friday night, but it always seems like it comes up on you real fast, and you know you'd always like to have a little more time to preps."

But the Rockets are going to be down one of their most explosive weapons to start the season.

Kaden Robinson was going to be a huge part of the Rockets' firepower this season, but he tore his ACL in a scrimmage earlier in August, which will sideline him for the entire 2017 season.

The good news is it happened early enough in preseason that they could come up with a new plan.

With Nathan Saint Onge as quarterback, there's veteran leadership on that side of the ball, and guys that thought they'd be on the sidelines this year will be called into action.
