High School football begins this weekend in Juneau.
The Juneau-Douglas Crimson Bears and Thunder Mountain Falcons varsity teams kick off Saturday at 7 p.m. at Falcons’ field. The junior varsity squads play at 4 p.m.
The annual Glacier Bowl is the season starter for the two teams. The Crimson Bears handily won the first two meetings.
JDHS has had a football team for more than two decades and Thunder Mountain is beginning its fourth season. During the regular season, which begins next week, the Bears play in the Railbelt conference against teams in Southcentral and the Interior, while the Falcons play against teams in Southeast Alaska.
Pre-season high school football begins tomorrow all over the state – about a month earlier than high schools in the Lower 48.
