Green Forest and Berryville scrimmage games coming up

Green Forest will play at Gravette on August 23. The jr. high team will play at 5:30 p.m. with the sr. high following at 7 p.m.
"Format for the game will be 20 plays and then we'll play one-half of a regulation game," said head Tiger football coach Jay Martin.
Berryville's benefit scrimmage game is at Mansfield on August 21. It will begin at 6 p.m.
These games give teams a preseason opportunity to play at full speed without the pressure of a game which counts toward the record.
