As I enter my 36th consecutive football season covering the Van Vandals, it is hard to believe that varsity football players all over Van Zandt County will begin their preparations in nearly two weeks for the new campaign as two-a-day practices begin Monday, Aug. 7 with the regular season kicking off Friday, Sept. 1.

Despite recent temperatures and heat indexes reaching over 100 degrees, football season is just around the corner.

The Vandals will have 23 returning lettermen including five offensive and five defensive starters returning from a squad that advanced to the Class 4A, Division I quarterfinals last season.
