With the opening of high school football season, coaches gathered at Blue Oak in downtown Martin to talk about their team’s openers this weekend.

Defending state champion Westview Chargers will open Saturday night against the Dresden Lions. Both teams made the playoffs with Westview winning the state championship.

Westview Coach Jarod Neal said there is a lot of work that needs to be done…

Meanwhile, in week 2 Westview will face Trenton Peabody, the only team to beat the Chargers last season…

A lot of excitement has been generated around the upcoming game. Dresden Coach Keith Hodge said it’s nothing new and his team still has a lot of work to do…
