Lancer football fans got a look into the future — both near and distant – on Friday.

Football teams from throughout the area, from this year’s SM East varsity squad to sixth grade teams from local elementary schools, took part in the annual Blue & Black Scrimmages on the SM East field, managing to get some high-speed run throughs in before intense storms arrived later in the evening.

SM East, which sits near the top of some prep football writers’ preseason rankings, will open its 2016 campaign against Olathe South Friday. The game will start at 7 p.m. at SM North District Stadium.
