After two long weeks of practicing against one another, Highland Park players finally will get to face an opponent on Friday.
The Scots will welcome Plano East to Highlander Stadium for a scrimmage, which will provide perhaps the most critical dress rehearsal for HP prior to next week’s season opener against Rockwall.
The Panthers finished 3-7 and missed the Class 6A playoffs, while the Scots posted a 15-1 mark and won their second consecutive Class 5A Division I state title. The varsity portion of Friday’s scrimmage will begin at 7:30 p.m., following subvarsity action.
