The 2017 high school football season is a week away from Week zero.

On Friday night, several jamborees allowed teams to step onto the field in front of a crowd in game-like conditions.

At Camden, the 42nd annual Camden Shrine Club Jamboree marked the unofficial debut of new Camden head football coach Brian Rimpf. The East Carolina graduate joins Lugoff-Elgin head coach Matt Campbell and North Central's Tyrone Drakeford as former NFL players now running programs in Kershaw County.

At Irmo, the Joe Turbeville Jamboree gave defending Class 5A state champion Dutch Fork a chance to showcase its new offensive weapon - Bryce Thompson who returned to Dutch Fork after spending a year at Ben Lippen where he helped the Falcons win their first state championship in football. Now he will try to help the Silver Foxes win their second straight and third overall.
