If you want to play high school football, or your kid does, then mark Aug. 1 on your calendar.
All three Dorchester Two high schools will open football practice on the first day of August. Players will need a completed physical form and parental permission slip before they will be allowed to participate in any practice activities. Schools typically have those forms available to download on their websites.
