As August began on Saturday morning, so did football practice for many of the football teams in the area.

Although most of the practices consisted of just conditioning, Elkin and Starmount took to the practice fields Saturday to prep for what they hope will be a season to remember. Practice with pads is scheduled to start in a few days for these teams, as they’re all searching for a competitive edge to start off the year strong.

Check out The Tribune later this month, as there will be features on players and coaches from Elkin, Starmount, East Wilkes, Forbush, and Surry Central in a special football edition.
