Area football players have been butting heads with their teammates for several weeks. Now it’s time to see just how they stack up against other squads.

Beginning Wednesday and continuing through Friday, area teams will be hitting the gridiron for a “dress rehearsal” in preparation for the regular season, which begins Aug. 26.

Here are the scrimmage dates and times for area teams.
