Football kicks off their season with annual Blue and Gold game


O’FALLON – The students are back on campus, and, after Friday night, so is football at O’Fallon Township High School.

Fans packed the stands for scrimmage play between offense and defense, giving a first look at the 2017 Panthers ahead of their regular season opener against Hazelwood Central this Friday night.

Play consisted of offense against defense for each level of Panther Football, starting with Little Panthers when the evening first started and ending with varsity at the conclusion of the event.

The evening also featured dance performances by campers from the OTHS Dance Camp from earlier in the summer, which featured dancers as young as four years old in choreographed routines in between the JV and Varsity scrimmages.
