      Season 18 of Friday Night Blitz rolls into week eight of the high school football season by featuring two top 10 teams in Class 6A in the Blitz Game of the Week.

      In a fight for the top spot in Region 5, No. 8 Shades Valley (7-0, 5-0) will travel to take on No. 6 Vestavia Hills (6-1, 5-0) at Thompson-Reynolds Stadium, where Mike Raita and al.com prep sports editor Jeff Sentell will be live for Blitz Gameday Friday beginning at 6:15 p.m.
