WEEK ZERO…FINALLY!

Its Saturday Afternoon.August 13,2016. Two days removed from a 21-20 victory against Chapman at The Woodruff Showcase. The 2016 Campaign for the newly formed Region III Class 5A has officially kicked into gear.

WEEK ZERO IS HERE.THE OPENING WEEK OF SOUTH CAROLINA HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL.ADJUSTING TO THE CHANGES IN CLASSIFICATION,SCHEDULE,PLAYOFF SYSTEM,ETC IS HARD ENOUGH ON THE COACHES AND PLAYERS BUT IT ALSO STRETCHES TO THE FANS. WE GET NEW RIVALS,SAY BYE TO SOME OLD ONES.WE MAKE NEW TRAVEL PLANS TO “FAR AWAY LANDS” SUCH AS ETOWAH,GA.WE SEARCH FOR HOTELS AND BBQ.WE RESEARCH YOUR SCHOOL,STADIUM AND CITY. WE LEARNED WHO YOUR STAR PLAYERS ARE,COACHING TENDENCIES AND TRADITIONS.

TRADITION.ITS HARD TO MENTION THAT WORD WITHOUT THE IMAGE OF SUMMERVILLE FOOTBALL POPPING INTO YOUR HEAD.
