Times Leader kicks off prep football today

The Times Leader is your home for all things prep football this season.

It all gets under way today as the annual Pigskin Preview is contained inside this edition.

The Pigskin Preview is more than 160 pages of stories, pictures and features on all football-playing OVAC members as well as in-depth previews on local colleges, including Ohio State, West Virginia and Ohio University.

Also inside today’s edition is the inaugural Pick Parade Contest for the 2012 season. A chance for the readers to pick the games and the person who picks the most correct will win a cash prize.

If you’re seeking the knowledge about the matchups in the premier games of the weekend, the weekly Xs and Os section is one you won’t want to miss. That will begin on Aug. 29 as we take a closer look at either three or four of the area’s best games of the upcoming weekend.

Obviously, Sports Saturday will have your recap of all area games from that Friday night. The Friday Night Lights page will also continue this season on Saturday mornings where The Times Leader photographers capture the spirit and entire atmosphere for prep football.
