Sports Drink Scrimmage Aug. 17


By Jerry Wadian



Football camp is over and the first days of practice have begun.

Thus, the first NFV football scrimmages will be held over the next eight days.

The first scrimmage will be Saturday after the squad finishes its first full week of practice. It will take place on the practice football field and is open to the general public.

The freshmen and JV will start the day at 8:30 a.m., with the varsity scrimmage beginning at 10 a.m. You may bring your own lawn chairs.

The 2017 version of TigerHawk football will be on display at the annual Sports Drink Scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 17. 

NFV fans will get a glimpse of their team by bringing a bottle of any kind of sports drink. These drinks are vital for the players’ hydration, especially early in the season. 

The big night of football will kick off at 7 p.m. with the freshmen and sophomores showing their potential. 

The varsity scrimmage showcasing the 2017 TigerHawks will begin at 8 p.m.

The regular season kicks off Friday, Aug. 25, at 7:30 p.m. as Class 3A Decorah visits West Union in a nondistrict match. Last year in Decorah, NFV beat the Vikings, 28-7.

TigerHawk football, as well as all of the other NFV fall sports teams, will be previewed in the All-Sports Tab that will be published Wednesday, Aug. 23.

In the meantime, fans can whet their appetites by bringing a sports drink to the stadium on Aug. 17 to see the TigerHawk football teams in action.
