If you can't wait for fall high school football to begin Downers Grove North is kicking off their season with tonights home field opener against Lockport. Sophomores play at 5 and Varsity play at 7:30. What's better than Friday Night Football?

Patricia, thanks for the note. It's been a crazy week/day and the North article was simply posted a little late.Trust me, both schools will be covered equally. If you know anyone who would like to blog about DGN or share photos, please let me know! amanda@patch.com

I do know someone who takes photos at the game, I will ask them if they are interested. Good luck to DGN and DGS teams!
