Welcome to Football Friday, Noontime Sports Fans and Friends!
Today, we kick-off a brand new season of high school football here in Massachusetts – sure, it may have started last night, but today marks the official start of Friday Night Lights 2018.
In addition to the return of Friday Night Lights, the New England Patriots will officially begin their season on Sunday when they host the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium.
So, with a jam-packed weekend ahead, let’s get this Football Friday started with some news and links from around the New England football world!
