SportsZone: Geno lands starting spot and HS football week 2

Posted: Updated:

NFL:

If you've been putting off joining a fantasy football league, now is the time.

The NFL regular season kicks off Thursday and one player we should expect to see this weekend on the gridiron for the Jets is former WVU Quarterback Geno Smith.

Rex Ryan announced today that Smith will get the start against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

It's been an ongoing debate on who would land the starting spot between him and Mark Sanchez and with Sanchez's recent shoulder injury it only solidified the decision.

This is the first time since 2009 that the Jets will start a rookie quarterback.

High School football:

It's week 2 of Friday Night Lights and last week Greenbrier West picked up their first win at Nicholas County.

It was a defensive battle between the two schools which ended with a 6-0 win for the Cavaliers.

The Ca vs will follow up that impressive showing with a game at Rich wood on Friday.
