Football is Back!!

Does the summer heat got you feeling down?

Well, here’s some good news for you.

High school football is officially back! The dead period, a two-week break sanctioned by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association, came to an end earlier this week, meaning athletes and teams can get to work for the fall football season.

The Somerset Briar Jumpers began practicing as soon as they could, as they had their fall practice on Wednesday afternoon. Class 5A squads Southwestern and Pulaski County will kick-off their practices early next week.

The first official games for the three local teams is just 42 days away, as they will kick-off the 2013 high school football season on Friday, August 23rd, in the Ray Correll Bowl at Somerset’s Clark Field.
