Practices are officially in full swing for the area's high school football players. Warm mornings and even hotter evenings are getting the athletes ready for another exciting season.

They are not the only ones that are ready to hit the turf running. WBCK will be back on the airwaves starting August 25th for the High School Football Game of the Week. I will be back calling the action for the third straight season alongside Jim Hughes. This season, like others before, will be different than all the others. Many questions and a ton of answers will come during the nine-week regular season.
