The gridiron season is right around the corner, and for two local teams, the jamboree is here.

Ben’s Ford and Bowling Green are both competing in the fourth annual Ben’s Ford Christian School jamboree tonight.

This is an opportunity for the players to be in game-like situations and it’s an opportunity for fans to see their teams under the lights.

The tripleheader features Central Private facing Prentiss Christian School in the opener at 6 p.m.

At 7 p.m., Bowling Green takes on CHEF with Ben’s Ford and New Orleans Home School to follow.

Each contest has two 12-minute halves. There will be no kickoffs, as drives after a score will begin at the 30-yard line.

If you’re a football fan, head on over to Ben’s Ford this evening and support the local athletes.
