The high school football season is almost here and coming up this Thursday, August 24th, and Friday, August 25th, 2023 there will be jamborees in the Southwest Louisiana area.

Football means Fall but Mother Nature is not cooperating right now. Nevertheless, football is back y'all! The jamborees coming up later this week is basically like the preseason for high school football.

This gives each team and school the chance to have a full-contact shortened game and iron out the kinks before the regular season starts. Week one of the high school football season will kick off on Thursday, August 31st, and Friday, September 1st for Lake Charles and Southwest Louisiana teams.
