The chase for the High School Football state championship doesn't exactly begin Thursday night...
But it sure is a dress rehearsal for the Real Thing.
It's MIAA Jamboree action at the Fairgrounds..
14-teams get in their licks in a one quarter of action apiece as the coaches find out if what they've worked on in practice actually works on the field..
Wooddale beat Central in one Jamboree game 14-8.
14-more teams take the field Friday Night at the Fairgrounds.
Jamboree Action starts at 5pm.
Remember, you can see the opening of the High School regular season on Friday Football Fever, coming your way on Action News 5 at 10pm August 19th.
