A summer of sweat and hard work will soon give way to big plays and cooler weather on Friday nights.
The Augusta Chronicle team is ready for another exciting season of high school football.
Just like the players and coaches who have been preparing for the upcoming games, so have our reporters, editors and photographers.
Our goal is to keep you informed about all of the teams in the greater Augusta area, starting with this prep football preview section.
Inside you’ll find our annual Dream 16 squad of the area’s top players, which features top-notch photography from Michael Holahan and profiles from David Lee.
We also have a number of team features, plus capsules, schedules and expanded information on 44 teams from our area.
Last year we launched a new website that is devoted to high school sports. Visit chronicleprepzone.com to see the latest scores, features and news from all of your favorite local teams.
Can’t make it to the games? Our app for prep sports has you covered and is available for download. Even if you can’t make it to the games, the free app will let you keep track of the Friday night action with live scores and tweets. The app is available for both iPhone and Android.
The app also includes the latest news, videos, slideshows and team pages.
Each week during football season we will pick a “Game of the Week.” You’ll have a chance to meet some of our staff each week.
Our coverage plans also include weekly statistics, a player of the week and features on the area’s top players and teams.
Be sure to check out our coverage, both in print and online, so you don’t miss any of the action.
