JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.- There is just one month remaining until the high school football season kicks off, and the Helias Crusaders now have one more thing to look forward to.
Their opening game against Nixa at Adkins Stadium on Sunday, August 24 will be televised on ESPNU.
It is one of several games that will air on the ESPN network during the opening weekend of the high school season.
The Crusaders were the state-runner up last season, and feature tight end Hale Hentges, who recently committed to Alabama.
