The HS football season is here! The long wait is over.

The UnioNCounty Football website has undergone a ton of changes in the offseason and we are still tweaking and adding new elements as we speak.

Please check out the new UC Pick 'em feature that allows you to pick all varsity games in Union County through the season. We also added a Media tab and will start to build content on those pages as the season begins.

We have also added two staff photographers- Jamey Ward & Chris Summerville and I'm certain you'll love their photos.

Good luck and good health to all teams as they begin another year of football!!!
