The East Ridge Parks and Recreation Department is hosting another Preseason Play Day on Saturday, Aug. 23.
Each team will scrimmage against two different teams with both teams playing offense for 12 minutes and defense for 12 minutes in each scrimmage.
The scrimmages are set to begin at 8 a.m. on that Saturday at East Ridge High, Boyd-Buchanan School and OLPH.
East Ridge Parks and Recreation Director Stump Martin said this is the third year hosting the Play Day.
“This has been a fun day the past two years,” Mr. Martin said. “It’s a dress rehearsal that allows teams to face somebody besides themselves before the season kicks-off. You can find out a lot about your team during the Play Day scrimmages.”
Mr. Martin said there is a charge at the gate, but as has been in the past, there is not a charge for the teams.
“We will start at 8 a.m. and the last scrimmages will be started by 4 p.m.,” Martin said. “We have had teams from Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia in the past and it’s a lot of football in a short period of time.”
