Football is back

Athens quarterback Joey Moore (14) looks downfield as Trimble’s Ian Joyce (68) pursues. Athens’ Brian List (50) also looks to make a block. The Bulldogs and Tomcats played in a Jamboree scrimmage on Friday at Rutter Field. Trimble won the first half 14-7, with Athens winning the second half, 22-0. The regular season begins this week, as Athens travels to Waverly on Friday and Trimble hosts Nelsonville-York on Saturday. The Messenger’s 2019 football preview will be in Thursday’s edition.
