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.
