The prep football season is set to begin tomorrow night for most of the central Oregon teams, but there are some changes to home sites due to smokey and unhealthy air quality conditions in some areas of the state.

At the time this was written, all games scheduled to kick off Friday night here with home dates for Summit, Bend, and La Pine are still scheduled.

However, Crook County was scheduled to play Phoenix in southern Oregon, but that game has been moved to north of Roseburg and will be played at Sutherlin High School.

Officials at the OSAA, the governing body for high school sports is closely monitoring the DEQ air quality site, and also the heat index guide as temperatures are expected to reach triple digits in some areas by tomorrow.

The air quality and smoke conditions have improved some in the last
24-hours. You can find updated information online at ‘O-S-A-A dot org.’ and we will alert you as we receive new information, also.
