Morris Sussex Sports is your source for everything you need to know about high school football in Morris and Sussex Counties. During the month of August, Morris Sussex Sports’ team of reporters are out visiting camps, talking to coaches and getting the latest skinny on everything that’s going on.

To keep things organized for our readers, we have created The Ultimate Preseason Guide to Football in Morris-Sussex. With that in mind, I wanted share with you how football preseason is going down at MSS to make sure you understand the how seriously we are about football in this area.

MSS Football Preseason Content Schedule

Here is what you can expect from us.  Every day Morris Sussex Sports will publish a new team preview that features a big narrative on how the team is shaping up, all sorts of stats and interesting tidbits and our outlook for the 2015 season. MSS is also going to do a special feature on each of the Top 10 Superheroes in Morris-Sussex. These pieces will give you a real inside look at these special athletes.

Our goal is by the time Week 1 rolls around you will know more about football in Morris-Sussex than you thought was possible. Of course, the regular season is going to be crazy too. Once that kicks off we’ll do our popular Weekly Predictions, Player of the Week specials and much more. We are also excited to tell you that MSS will provide more game coverage than any other publication in the area with our top notch team of writers.

To keep up on all of the preseason insanity, feel free to use this guide. As articles get published will be highlighted them with a blue hyperlink. Enjoy! -George
