High School Football opens Friday; here's the Week 1 schedule for the L-L League, YAIAA, and Mid-Penn

There are a whopping 50 games on the schedule Friday night, thanks in part to the addition of several Berks County schools to the Lancaster-Lebanon League.

YORK, Pa. — Editor's note: The above video is from Aug. 9.

High school football in Central Pennsylvania kicks off with the first week of action Friday night, and it's a supersized schedule.

With the addition of 13 Berks County football teams, the Lancaster-Lebanon League has expanded to 37 members -- which adds a few more games to an already crowded Week 1 docket.

So there are a whopping 50 games featuring L-L League, Mid-Penn and York-Adams Interscholastic Athletic Association teams set for Friday night, followed by seven more on Saturday.

The FOX43 Game of the Week a battle between Mid-Penn Conference foes Shippensburg and Cedar Cliff -- a rematch of last year's District 3 Class 5A playoff quarterfinals. The Colts won that game 10-7, which means the visiting Greyhounds will be out for revenge.
