Opening Drive (Aug. 20): Game day – for a few

La Vergne and Rockvale – wake up! It’s game day.

For the rest of you playing tomorrow, still one more sleep till kickoff. But Week 1 is here.

And it’s a week we weren’t sure we’d see even six weeks ago. Embrace it, enjoy it, but most of all, don’t take it for granted. Do what’s necessary to ensure that Week 1 isn’t the only week.

In the meantime, catch up on what you might have missed from around the area yesterday:
