Tentative 2015 Football Schedules Coming Together

There are still several holes to be filled via announcement, but as of Wednesday afternoon, via credible online sources, this is what we know about the new era of high school football scheduling with Patrick Henry moving to a Capital District schedule. Also, some Hanover County schools are taking advantage of a rule set forth two years ago allowing regular seasons to be begin prior to Labor Day.

If a week doesn't hold a game yet, it is because it has not been finalized or publicized by the school.
