Football: The kickoff classic schedule for Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast 

By Jeff Greer

Football season is here. Check out the exhibition matchups on tap for this week.

There are several marquee kickoff classics on this week’s schedule. The biggest, of course, pits Dwyer against Miami Central, the top-ranked team in the nation. We also get Fort Pierce Central at Royal Palm Beach, Miami Northwestern at Palm Beach Central, American Heritage at First Coast and out-of-state power Friendship Collegiate (D.C) at Atlantic.

None of these games count toward a team’s regular-season record, but they certainly give coaches and fans a good idea of what might be coming this fall.

All games kick off at 7 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
