The first high school football scrimmages of the season took place Saturday as the Bangs Dragons and Goldthwaite Eagles met in a battle of defending district champions. Richland Springs’ Tommy Hollon tracks down a Mullin passer, while Zephyr’s Haustin Simmons breaks a tackle against Rising Star. The regular season begins Friday, Aug. 28 for most area high schools.
