Two Seasons?: As we count down the days until kickoff, there is no doubt that this will be a football season like none other in my lifetime.

One constant in years past has been that the high school and college seasons have generally paralleled time frames.

There may possibly be some spring football, but its expected that the major colleges like Alabama and Auburn are going to attempt to play in the fall as usual.

High school football in Alabama starts on Aug. 20. The Reeltown/Tallassee game opens on that Thursday night.

Last year, teams opened up in late August as well. Tallassee played Catholic on Aug. 23. The next week on Aug. 31, Auburn and Alabama opened their seasons. That was quite normal. Start dates for high school and college are quite often about a week apart.

Think about this. With the SEC's recent announcement of a Sept. 26 start date, the high school season will be six weeks in before many college teams are even kicking off.

I know that there are some college games still scheduled to still start in August, but I'm having a hard time finding games of substance prior to late September. And, who knows how those schedules will look then. There are bound to be changes.

I, for one, look forward to a football weekend. There's as much anticipation about Friday nights as Saturdays to me. A good bit of the weeks of football this year won't be quite like that.

I'm hopeful that we get to play all ten regular season games. Maybe the team you pull for will make a deep run and be playing five weeks into the post-season. That wouild wrap them up the week of the Iron Bowl.

If the college football season makes it through its regular season, the SEC Championship Game will be on Dec. 19. That's the week of Christmas. Ho! Ho! Ho!

We're counting down the days until kickoff for the beginning of the 100th season of THS football with a 66-year WTLS tradition, Saturday morning radio playbacks. Listen this weekend as we feature the Tigers' upset of top-ranked Eufaula 20-17 in 2008. Rodney Dollar's team got a 99-yard kickoff return from Brian Simpson and a 33-yard game-winning field goal from two-time all-state player Hunter Mullins, who would later sign with UAB.
