      It's that time of the year again; high school football is back on the Friday night agenda!

      Over the next few months families will start their weekend with a game of football.

      Dougherty County Athletic Director Johnny Seabrooks says school police will be out making sure ball game patrons are safe.

      While police man the crowds, people are reminded that no book bags are allowed inside the stadium. This is to prevent people from smuggling in weapons.

      Spectators also aren't permitted to bring coolers inside the stadium.

      Dougherty County School Police will be out at every game this season enforcing the rules.
