Hoover's season opening showdown with former coach Rush Propst and Colquitt County is the ABC 3340 'Blitz Game of the Week'.

Propst was the head coach at Hoover for six full seasons (2000-07) and helped the Bucs to five state championships, including four consecutive 6A titles. He won 91 percent of his games but stepped down when details of his double life became public in the middle of the 2007 season.

Propst was hired as the head coach at Colquitt County less than three months later. He's helped the Packers to four Georgia High School semifinal appearances and the GHSA Class 5A Championship game in 2010.

Hoover hired Josh Niblett to replace Propst and has reached the 6A Championship game in each of his five seasons. The Bucs won the state title in 2009 and 2012.

ABC 3340 will be live from the Hoover Met with 'Blitz Gameday' beginning Friday night at 6. Hoover and Colquitt County kickoff at 7 PM.
