It all starts today.
Friday Night Lights. Rivalry games. League showdowns. Playoff battles. Section VI and Monsignor Martin championships. State titles.
All the work starts this morning as it is the first day of practice for high school teams in New York State.
Many fall sports, including football, hold their first workouts today.
As with every big day on the high school calendar, we want your #PrepTalkLive feedback via Twitter.
We'll update the live blog below with news, notes, photos and tweets from schools and fans throughout Western New York.
You can automatically have your tweets appear in the live blog by including the hashtag "#PrepTalkLive" in your tweet. As was the case all of last season, we'll tweet our updates -- and look for yours -- on every busy day on the Western New York high school sports calendar.
Check back with us for updates throughout the preseason and expanded coverage as we approach football's Scrimmage Saturday (Aug. 30) and the start of the high school season, including the Week One football kickoff on Sept. 5-6.
