High school football: Opening night primer

Published: Thursday, Aug. 18 2011 3:00 p.m. MDT

The Deseret News has been your source throughout the preseason with preview stories on all 101 high school football teams and all 15 regions. We'll continue to be your source with the season officially getting under way tonight at 49 high schools around the state.

In conjunction with the start of the high school football season, the Deseret News launchs its new mobile website (www.deseretnews.com/m/). We'll be providing quarterly scoring updates for almost every game in the state on our high school site, so be sure to have your smart phones handy in the bleachers.

After the final whistle, be sure to log onto Deseretnews.com for complete stats and information for every game in the state.

And before the season gets underway tonight, be sure to sign up for the Deseret News High School Grid Picks contest for your chance to win an iPad 2 as you predict the winner of 14 prep games each week.

To get help with your Grid Picks research, be sure to check out KSL's SportsBeat Game Night Live every Friday night at 6:30 p.m. as a Deseret News writer joins the KSL prep team to break down the state's best matchups. This week's show will be broadcast live at Jordan High in the build-up to the Fremont at Jordan game.
