OK, OK…enough about who’s starting where, offensive formations and boundless optimism. It’s time to play football.
Today isn’t quite opening day, but it’s an appetizer. Just about every team in Section 1 will participate in scrimmages today and tonight, and we will be there to chronicle a handful of them.
I will hit two places today: Nyack at 2 and White Plains at 5. Of course, I’ll post update throughout the day on Twitter at Twitter.com/LoHudInsider. I’ll return tonight with a report on what I saw.
My colleague Chris Perez will hit two scrimmages as well: Ossining at 5 and Lakeland at 7. Same deal with Chris. You can find him on Twitter at Twitter.com/LoHud_Perez and he’ll have a report tonight as well.
In all, Chris and I will have a chance to catch 19 Section 1 teams in action today. Of course, we’ll cover more teams on Friday and Saturday, but I’ll clue you in that plan in the morning.
For now, enjoy the return…finally…of football.
