It's been an interesting start to the 2023 high school football season to say the least.

Last week, we had a total of four games in town, two of which were delayed due to lightning and two of which were cancelled entirely due to a monsoon, not associated with Tropical Storm Hilary.

This week's schedule was impacted by the aforementioned storm which hit the valley hard on Sunday and causing problems for many.

In fact, Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs both cancelled their games due to a lack of ample practice time with school closed most of the week.

As you can see, most of our local teams are on the road for early season tests. The only home game in the valley this week is Desert Hot Springs.

The Golden Eagles welcome Jurupa Valley in our de-facto Game of the Week as they try to improve to 2-0 in the new and exciting Roy Provost era.

Be sure to watch the Best Local Sports Show with Blake Arthur and Bailey Arredondo every Friday night during the season and connect with them during the season.
