The 2022 Football season begins

It’s that time again! It’s that time to bring out the support signs, pom poms and noise making plastic bottles filled with coins. It’s time again to dust off the bleacher chairs and team spirit gear. This is a special time of year. That time of year where we all experience the best weather, taste the best food and experience the best scent that will ever grace your nose. Nope, not the smell of tailgate food but the smell of freshly cut grass as the landscaper marks those beautiful white lines across the field. It’s time for football season. However, there is only one thing better than football season and that’s high school football in Northeast Florida. It’s been a long off-season and it’s going to be exciting to see how the talent surrounding Northeast Florida will be unveiled this year. Today marks week 1 for the 2022 football season. Here are some of the games to watch tonight:

Fleming Island @ Clay 7pm

Mandarin @ Fletcher 6:30 pm

OakLeaf @ Orange Park 7pm

Ponte Vedra @ Bartram Trail 7 pm

Monsignor Pace @ Raines 6:30pm

Trinity Christian @ Ed White 6:30pm

Union County @ University Christian 7:30 pm

Westside @ Riverside 6:30pm

The JEAG sports game of the week will be the Panthers of Nease High school hosting the Andrew Jackson Tigers. This game carries some weight as two Times Union Super 11 selections face off against one another. Grayson Howard is a highly recruited Linebacker that has committed to the University of South Carolina from Andrew Jackson. The super tackler recorded 157 tackles last season with 95 solo tackles and 2 interceptions. This week he will face off against the superstar Quarterback from Nease, Marcus Stokes. Stokes is a University of Florida commit that passed for 2,672 yards last season with 22 passing touchdowns and 9 interceptions. It’s going to be exciting to see how these 2 prime time players master what they do best against one another.This top-notch showdown will be one for the books kicking off the regular season for 2022 at 7 pm.
