December 15, 2012 - Atlanta, Ga: Norcross players get a chance to kiss the championship trophy following their 21-14 win over Lovejoy in the Class AAAAAA High School Football Final at the Georgia Dome Saturday night in Atlanta, Ga., December 15, 2012.

ATLANTA - The first football game of the season is today. It’s just a scrimmage, but Spalding will play at Pike County in the first of about 200 practice games that precede the season-opening games on the weekend of Aug. 22-24.

There are six scrimmages scheduled for this week, including Colquitt County at Norcross on Saturday at 6 p.m. in a rematch of the Class AAAAAA semifinal won 41-27 by Norcross, the eventual state champion. Norcross also beat Colquitt 33-31 in a 2012 scrimmage in Moultrie.

“They’re talented,” Colquitt County coach Rush Propst told Wayne Grandy of the Moultrie Observer. “With 60-plus seniors, you’d expect that. But we need to play Norcross. It will be a huge benefit for us. We won’t see anybody better.”

A few teams won’t hold a scrimmage. “Not enough players to risk injury,” Savannah Christian coach Donald Chumley said.
