Six teams, including host Lugoff-Elgin and fellow Kershaw County colleague North Central, will tune up for next Friday's season openers at tonight's sixth annual May Plant Credit Union Kickoff Classic at Lugoff-Elgin Stadium.
Lugoff-Elgin will host the sixth annual May Plant Credit Union Kickoff Classic at Lugoff-Elgin Stadium on Friday night in the final pre-season action before the first week of the 2011 football season begins next Friday.
After having used last Friday's scrimmages to get their feet wet in preparation for the upcoming season, Kershaw County's three public high school football teams will have a busier second full week of the pre-season, topped off by Friday's Camden Shrine Club Jamboree at Zemp Stadium.
Due to the heat-related death of a freshman football player whose funeral will be held today, Lamar High School's coaching staff asked North Central if it could change the time and site of tonight's football scrimmage between the two schools.
Even though the 2012 football season is some 56 weeks in the offing, Lugoff-Elgin High School head coach and athletic director Scott Jones already has one win under his team's collective belt before the 2011 campaign has even kicked off.
While members of the Camden Shrine Club may have their collective fingers crossed in hopes of good weather for the charitable organization's 36th annual Shrine Club Football Jamboree on Friday, Aug. 12, Camden High head coach Jimmy Neal is not leaving anything to chance.
