Harper Creek football team gears up for season opener with Caledonia

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - High school football teams are wrapping up their final game prep practices Wednesday afternoon.

Most schools in the Newschannel 3 viewing area are set to open the season Thursday night.

One of the games we are fired up about is in Caledonia, as Harper Creek hits the road to take on a Scots program that is always battle tested by playing in the rugged OK White conference, with powers like East Grand Rapids, Lowell, and Grand Rapids Christian.

The Beavers went 7-3 last year, with a 1st round playoff exit at the hands of Byron Center, and expect to compete in the 2014 campaign.
