Tropical storm Darby is gone and football season is here.

The Hawaii high school football regular season starts Aug. 5, which is 10 days away.

But fans can get a look at their teams in action in full pads scrimmages at various locations starting Thursday. Scheduled scrimmages taper off when the regular-season starts, but there are at least two scheduled after that.

Not all of the 29 Oahu football-playing schools have notified Hawaii Prep World of their schedule of scrimmages, so the list below is a partial one.

There are many scrimmages with both teams having finished in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s final Top 10 from 2015 — Farrington (No. 7) at Kamehameha (No. 5) on Thursday; Miilani (No. 4) at Kahuku (No. 1) on Friday; Kamehameha at Mililani, and a three-way Farrington, Punahou (No.3), Kahuku scrimmage on Saturday; and Farrington at Kahuku on Aug. 5.

Kailua, which finished just outside the Top 10, is also involved in two scrimmages against Top 10 teams from the final 2015 poll — at home against Saint Louis (No. 2) on Thursday, and at home against Radford (No. 8) on Friday.

    Will Mililani bring cheerleaders and the whole band for scrimmages? They did last year.

    @TheRedSea…… I know it sounds dumb to have all that. But if you think about it, Mililani kinda use their scrimmages as fundraisers. The band and cheerleaders make it feel like an actual game environment for the fans, and their gona spend money at the consession which pretty much goes back to the program. Prolly why they always have new uniforms.
