Lace up those shoes, strap on those shoulder pads and lock down that chin strap — it's time for high school football.
The 2017 Oregon high school football season kicks off on Friday with games scheduled at all levels across the state.
And with all that going on, Pamplin Media Group's sports editors, reporters and photographers will be out in force to document the action.
Pamplin Media Group continues and builds on its role as a state leader in high school football coverage this fall, presenting its work more quickly and sharing it more broadly.
We, as a company, are now posting our high school football stories and photos to all our websites as soon as possible following each Friday night's contests.
And once they're posted, by clicking on the Prep Football tab that's now part of each of our websites, visitors will be able to see all the stories and photos posted by our sports reporters and sports editors, not just those particular to their home schools and home towns.
To see the new Prep Football tab, just hover over the Sports tab at the top of the page.
