As the start of another high school football season draws near, players and coaches are working hard to to beat the clock and be prepared for opening night — August. 17.
Between lifting weights, studying film, practicing and doing conditioning drills, they are also working in time for a few scrimmages. While some are little more than glorified practices, others will have a bit more intensity to them.
And while all of this is going on, we are busy working on putting together a football preview section to help kick off this season. We, too, hope to be ready for opening night.
