Life is a jamboree

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La -

High school football in Louisiana does not begin its season until next week, but this week many teams are taking part in various jamborees.  These allow schools to play what essentially amount to pre-season games in which all the units get an opportunity to go against another team.

Friday night in Bossier Parish one of the week's biggest jamborees will take place with three games between six schools.  Parkway, Airline, Bossier, Benton, Haughton and Louisiana New Tech high schools all got together Monday night to flip a coin to see which teams would be home and which would be visitors.  They were also able to share the camaraderie that will likely disappear once the season begins for real a week later.
