It’s Friday, which means that high school football playoffs across the country are in full swing.

While just two of the Tar Heels’ 12 Class of 2018 commits have been eliminated thus far, four others received first-round byes, which leaves a relatively light slate of games for the weekend.

As we do every week, Tar Heels DieHards has put together an interactive map showing you where you can catch each of those games:

Note: To navigate the map, click and drag. Zooming either can be done with the plus and minus tool located in the top left corner or with your preferred scrolling method. To see which player is playing where, highlight the colored marker. The expanded detail for each marker contains the name of the player and the school he’s playing for and against.
