The Van Wert football parents will be running a concession stand from a tent at the south end of Eggerss Stadium. They will have sandwiches, drinks, and candy available.

Both teams will open the regular season on the road the following Friday, with Van Wert traveling to Bryan and Crestview playing at Parkway.
