The year-long wait is finally over...high school football season is here!

This is officially considered 'Week zero' as not all area schools will be starting the regular season tonight, however, there are some marquee match-ups already on tap. 

We'll mention a few of the games and give you details on how you can pick the teams you think will win -- after the jump. 

The Lufkin Panthers always have a tough non-conference schedule as 2011 is no different as the Pack will take on their old nemesis, the John Tyler Lions. 

Other area games include Diboll vs Tatum, Garrison vs Hemphill, and Corrigan-Camden taking on Woodville. 

Think you're pretty good at picking the winners?  Go to the KICKS 105 Football Pick 'em contest.

Remember, KICKS 105 is your home for Lufkin Panther football with tonight's pregame starting at 7.
