Opening Drive (Aug. 16): Dress rehearsal weekend

There’s lots of action to be found this weekend as jamborees are all over the area with teams getting their final preseason work in before next week’s season openers. We’ll have folks at the Industrial Bowl Jamboree at Macon County tonight.

Our Twitter account (@615Preps) is currently down, but we hope to have it back up and running soon. In the meantime, follow Chris Brooks (@CBrooksTN), Scott Burton (@MPPScott) and Christian Kaposy (@cpkaposy18) for more. Our first Midstate Spotlight Game of the Week, as announced on our latest podcast episode, will be Lebanon at Gallatin next Friday.

Also, starting Monday, we’ll have Twitter polls where you can vote on who will win the best games of the week, and we’ll discuss them on the podcast when we record on Wednesday. Catch up on news from around the area:
