Local football teams to scrimmage Friday night
All four local high school football teams will have an opportunity to perform under the Friday night lights in preseason scrimmages Friday, August 14. Cartersville will play at Woodland and Cass will travel to Adairsville for controlled scrimmages. Both games will kickoff at 7:30pm. Normal game admission will be charged.
The formats for both scrimmages will be almost identical. The varsity starters for each team are expected to see most of the playing time in the first half to three quarters and the younger junior varsity and freshmen players will be on the field in the latter stages. Each of the four local coaches have noted the importance of getting their teams in game-type situations and getting their performances on video tape. Adairsville will open their 2015 regular season next Friday (August 21) at Ridgeland and then return home the following Thursday (August 27) to host Woodland. Cartersville and Cass open the 2015 campaign at Cass on Friday, August 28. Kickoff for all four teams' regular season openers will be 7:30pm. Bartow Sports Zone and AM1270 WYXC will broadcast 13 regular season games this Fall, and will cover each of the season openers for the local teams. Pregame coverage will always begin a 7:05pm.
