Saturday, August 23rd the inaugural Battleground Kickoff Classic will take place at A.J. McClung Memorial Stadium in Columbus, Georgia. All games will be streamed LIVE on the NFHS Network.
The NFHS Network will kick off its live coverage of the 2014-15 high school football season this weekend in Alaska with the first regular season games to be played anywhere in the United States. The season begins earlier in Alaska due to the extreme weather conditions that begin as early as October.
This weekend the Virginia High School League spring championships culminate in a spectacular two-day span of sporting events coined Spring Jubilee. By end of day Saturday, boys and girls in groups 1A-6A will be crowned state champions in baseball, soccer, softball, lacrosse and tennis.
The spring season of high school championships begins to wind down, but that doesn’t mean the records aren’t still coming in, and no sport this season has seen more noteworthy performances than track and field.
