The high school football season is back and ready to roll in Indiana, with the Connersville Spartans opening the campaign on the road tonight against a longtime rival.

CHS will tangle with Richmond at Lyboult Field (7 p.m.), with hopes of bouncing back from a loss in last season’s season opener. A year ago, the Red Devils left CHS Field with a 27-0 victory.

Head coach Adam Kelly’s team finished 2-8 last season, with both wins coming in decisive fashion. The Spartans blanked Eastern Indiana Athletic Conference foe South Dearborn, 40-0, and raced past Indianapolis Broad Ripple, 43-6.

Pendleton Heights ended Connersville’s season with a 31-7 win in sectional play.

Kelly is 16-35 in his 6th year as the CHS coach. Richmond has a new head coach, Ibrahim ‘Abe’ Tawfeek, who was 10-10 in two years at Indianapolis Northwest.

CHS hosts Franklin County on Aug. 25 in an EIAC matchup. The Wildcats, who finished 7-4 last season, play at New Castle tonight.
