Let the Football Season Begin
Another High School Football season is about to begin. Scrimmages have been taking place all over the state and now it is time to begin the season. Every team starts the year 0-0. But that ends quickly.
WELI will begin coverage of High School Football on Thursday, September 13 when Hillhouse visits Foran in Milford and on Friday night, it's a battle of Indians when Guilford takes on North Haven at Vanacore Field in North Haven.
Scores will be rolling in from all over the state. Which teams get off to a good start and which teams will be 0-1 and searching for answers. The fun and excitement begins and goes all the way to the championships in December.
Which teams will make the "Big Dance" and stand tall in the end. Let the fun begin!
