Opening Drive (Aug. 27): Into the swing of things

Now that the pageantry of the opening week is in the rear-view mirror, teams can get to work with the week-to-week grind that the regular season presents. Coaches generally say the biggest improvement comes from the first game to the second one. We’ll see about that this week.

Our crew is headed to Murfreesboro on Friday as Ravenwood visits Blackman for our Midstate Spotlight Game of the Week.

We also still have openings for advertising on the 615Preps Podcast, so if you know someone who wants to support high school sports, have them email us at for more information.

Catch up on news and notes from around the area:
