The Byrnes High football team is looking for a new opponent for its season opener. The Rebels were scheduled to play First Coast High out of Jacksonville, Florida but that game is off because First Coast may lose all of its athletic programs because of education budget cuts.
The game was scheduled to be played August 26th or 27th at Nixon Field. The Spartanburg-Herald Journal reports Byrnes will probably fill the game with another out-of-state opponent. The defending 4A-Division one state champs are also looking for an opponent to play in week three.
