The unofficial start of the football season in Chester County has officially been set.
The lineup for the annual Chester County Football Jamboree, which features all three county schools, was unveiled last week. The event, which is set for August 12 at Chester High School, will open up at 6 p.m. with Lewisville facing off against the Hickory Hawks. The game will mark the debut of Leon Boulware, new head football coach at Lewisville. The Hawks are a private, Christian-based team from North Carolina featuring home-schooled players, along with some private and public school athletes. The team posted a 5-7 record in 2021. The Hawks actually have some experience and familiarity with Chester County, having played both Great Falls and Chester last season. The Lions are coming off a 3-6 season that saw them lose six straight after a 3-0 start.
