Coaches and players get fired up every year about scrimmages. They don’t count, the play-calling is usually bland, and the structure is typically scaled back to alleviate injuries and such, but it presents the first time each fall when they can line up against an actual opponent.
So Highland Park will hold their annual scrimmage with Plano West tonight at Clark Field in Plano (varsity is set to begin about 6 p.m., from what we’re told), to give the Scots and their fans a chance to get the competitive juices flowing.
After tonight’s sneak peek, only a week remains until the regular-season opener against Frisco Centennial. That game is slated for 7 p.m. Aug. 30 at SMU’s Ford Stadium as part of the Tom Landry Classic.
By the way, we’ll be there tonight, so check back later for analysis from the scrimmage.
