The pads will be a poppin' today as high school football teams across the state get their first taste of action against another team.
That's because today is Scrimmage Saturday. After working against their teammates since training camps began on Aug. 13, teams participate in controlled scrimmages across Western New York this morning and afternoon.
As I have the past few years, I plan to make at least a couple of stops today. I'll either be in the live blog below, or I'll be tweeting with the hashtag #scrimmagesat, so those tweets will show up in the live blog. I'm hoping to post some pics and videos as well.
Here is the lineup of today's scrimmages.
If you are taking in any of today's scrimmages, let us know what you think of the action with tweets with the hashtag #scrimmagesat and they'll appear below as well.
The Countdown to Friday Night Lights will continue in Sunday's paper with Class A North and it will continue Monday (Class AA South), Tuesday (Class AA North) and Wednesday (Monsignor Martin). The season preview will be published Thursday.
