Jamboree schedule for Oxford, Lafayette, Water Valley

Published 2:11 pm Monday, August 6, 2018

Preseason for high school football ends this week. With it comes the annual jamboree games.

These are not full-length games, those come next week when the regular season begins. Instead, they are tune-ups to help sort out depth chart issues and ironing out what teams have been working on during the two-week fall camp.

Oxford and Lafayette are hosting their jamboree while Water Valley will hit the road for theirs on Friday.
