Area high school football coaches got their first glimpse of what to expect from their squads as teams participated in their first scrimmages last Friday.

Allendale-Fairfax High, Williston-Elko High and Cross High engaged in a three-team scrimmage in Williston.

Both Allendale-Fairfax High coach Glynn Darby and Williston-Elko High coach Derek Youngblood agree that there’s plenty of room for improvement before the season opener.
