Fall Sports: For high school sports fans, yesterday announcements were released by the Texas University Interscholastic League as to start dates for extracurricular activities.

For Class 1A thru 4A Liberty Panther Head Football Coach and Athletic director Chad Taylor was in our studios yesterday and said the one change to the Panther schedule was they would have only one scrimmage. Liberty’s one and only preseason scrimmage is on the road against the tough East Chambers Buccaneers the third weekend in August.
