Football is back.
A three-word phrase that is music to the ears of bored fathers, competition-hungry players, rabid fans and high school sports journalists.
Some around the country will get a taste this week as a handful of states kick off the season - but the vast majority will start next weekend.
This season RivalsHigh will provide a sampling of the best games around the country with our Game of the Week features (Wednesday), Weekend Watch (Thursday) and Where We'll Be (Friday) to get you prepared for the weekend's slate of games.
The Weekend Watch series will focus on the best games in each RivalsHigh region: Atlantic East, Great Lakes, Heartland, South and West. We also will be taking email requests for our 10 predictions each week and encouraging users to compete in our Pick'Em contest.
With this week's Game of the Week focusing on a Western battle between Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman and Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral, we will look into games around the rest of the country.
