Prep football ready for action

Schools across state hit turf this weekend
By Cliff Pfenning,

It might not be 11 on 11, on every field, but high school football will return to Oregon fields today at all six classifications.

Much of the Portland Metro area will begin, with the PIL getting onto fields Saturday.

A number of schools are playing at a lower classification, and some games are set for 7-on-7. There are even a few flag games scheduled across the state. But, it's the completion of the first week of the Class of 2021 Athletic calendar that will eventually include Winter and Spring campaigns that run into June.

The Fall season is scheduled to last just six weeks, ending on or before April 11. There are no scheduled playoffs.
