The 2019 high school football season is right around the corner!

The regular season begins on September 5-6 for most teams, but a number of teams will get prep time in jamboree action a week prior.

There are a number of outstanding jamborees scheduled in the Acadiana area, including the Joe Nagata Memorial Jamboree in Eunice.

Play is set for Friday, September 30, with two games on the schedule.

The first game will feature Opelousas Catholic and Ascension Episcopal, while the second game will have the host school, St. Edmund, squaring off with Vermilion Catholic.

Meanwhile, the 68th edition of the Kiwanis Football Jamboree, which will be held at Cajun Field on Thursday and Friday, August 29-30, will feature 12 teams.

Gates will open 5 pm each day, with kickoff time set for 6 o'clock.

Tickets are $10.

The six featured games will last 24:00, about half the time of a regular season game.
