According to West Washington High School Athletic Director Ron Smith, this Friday’s West Washington High School Varsity Football game will be moved back to an 8p kick off due to the heat.

High temperatures in the mid 90s have been predicted for this week and there is a concern for the safety of the players and fans.

“Hopefully by 8p, things will be a little cooler,” said Smith. Gates will open at 7p for fans to arrive.

The Senators face the Crawford County Wolf pack in their season home opener. The game will be broadcast live on WSLM 1220 AM.

The pre-game will begin at 7:45 p.m. with the kickoff at 8:00 p.m. with play by play with Matthew Deaton and Darrin Russell and Color and Stats by Wade Tomlinson.
