By Bill Barrows
 
Week No.2 of high school football is upon us already. Fortunately for the players, the weather will cooperate. The hot and humid August nights seem to have passed us by this season.
 
This is the last week of non-conference games. The schedule for this week provides some interesting matchups. Manchester (0-1) will travel to Bluffton. Northfield (1-0) heads to Peru and Southwood (0-1) will be entrenched in a border battle at Oak Hill. The Wabash WebTV crew will be on hand at Wabash (1-0) as the Apaches renew an old CIC rivalry with Alexandria. Broadcast time will be 6:45 p.m. and kickoff at 7 p.m. from Alumni Field. I will also be on hand with the PA Mic and will have a comment or two with Jim Landrum & Tim Harness on the broadcast.
