Lancaster Catholic vs Columbia-LL Football

Lancaster Catholic's Jeff Harley (5) takes off for the endzone against Columbia during first half action of an LL League section 3 football game at Crusader Stadium in Lancaster Friday August 31, 2018.

Are you ready for some football?

Not blocking and tackling drills. Not route-running fundamentals. And not pushing those rickety old sled-dummies across the back practice fields.

There will be real, live football games on Saturday — with scoreboards turned on and referees patrolling the field, whistles and yellow hankies at the ready — when all 24 L-L League teams participate in scrimmages across the region.

It will be the only scrimmage date on the schedule, with every L-L League team due to start their season on Friday, Aug. 23. So there should be plenty of position battles to be settled on Saturday.
