COUNTY — Although rain put a damper on the Foothills FCA Jamboree at Seneca High on Saturday night, cancelling scheduled scrimmages for both Pickens and Liberty, all four Pickens County high schools will get their chances to take the field for jamboree action in the county this week.

Easley will host its first Green Wave Jamboree under new head coach Grayson Howell on Thursday at 5 p.m., with Hanna taking on Rock Hill, Pickens playing Westside, Seneca battling Rosman (N.C.) and the host Green Wave facing Berea.

The following night, Pickens will host its jamboree starting at 6 p.m., with a tilt between Liberty and Seneca, a Daniel-Wade Hampton matchup and a nightcap featuring the Blue Flame against Walhalla.

Daniel, which was fortunate enough to get in its action in a 21-7 win over Woodruff at the Foothills Jamboree Saturday, will host its annual Daniel Day Jamboree next Friday, Aug. 23. The event will feature Walhalla taking on Blacksburg, Liberty facing Christ Church, and the Lions hosting 4A Spartanburg to close the night.

That same night, Pickens and Easley will tangle to open the regular season in week 0 action in the annual Sam Wyche Meals on Wheels Food Fight Bowl at Easley High.

Daniel and Liberty will open the regular season the following Friday night, with Easley visiting the Lions and Liberty hitting the road to play Travelers Rest.
