Anticipation is running high as the Bartow High School Yellow Jacket football team gets ready to start the new season. The Friday game in Frostproof will provide more answers to questions about the year ahead.

Few can recall the last time that Bartow and Frostproof met on the gridiron and the Kickoff Classic pre season contest has a lot to offer both teams. Both were winners of their respective spring games with Bartow topping Mulberry 35-27 and Frostproof beating Lake Region 14-7. It was Bartow’s first game under new head coach Jason Butler, who had been in the position less than a month at the time of the May game. Frostproof sat potential fall starters to get a good look at the depth chart. That was three months ago and a lot has changed in the interim. Both programs appear to be stronger in many ways, a fact that will show itself on Friday night in Frostproof.
