We found some preseason football action Saturday with a scrimmage between Amherst and Lorain. Now we’re looking forward to the season opener Friday, Aug. 25 at home against Clearview. The Comets, under new coach Mike Passerrello, have favorable line-ups in early weeks versus the Clippers, Lakewood Rangers, and North Ridgeville Rangers.
