Eagles to host first scrimmage

The Canton Eagles will take a giant step closer to opening the regular season this week, hosting Mt. Vernon Aug. 18 and Kaufman Aug. 24 in a pair of scrimmages to prep for the season opener Sept. 1.

Mt. Vernon should provide a solid test for the Eagles, coming off a season in which they finished 5-5 overall with a loss to White Oak in the bi-district round of the playoffs.

The Tigers will bring plenty of experience with them to Canton, returning eight starters on both sides of the ball.
