by: BILLY GATES/THE PIONEER -  Sophomore Chris Norris runs the ball during a team offense drill. Camp continues through this week, and the Buffs will start doubles next Monday. Camps before the official practice dates are commonplace now in the high school football landscape, as it allows teams to get an extra week of work in before they can strap on pads and smack each other around.

The varsity team will hold a scrimmage at 5 p.m., Aug. 23.

Madras will open the season on the road at 7 p.m. Aug. 30 in Stayton, and will be on the road the entire nonconference schedule with games in Sisters, Redmond and Prineville.
