The Empire Football League season is just around the corner for the Watertown Red & Black.
Coach George Ashcraft's team opens the 2017 season in less than two months and for the past few weeks the team has been practicing at the Watertown Fairgrounds.
The Red & Black open the season on July 8, traveling to Glens Falls to meet the Greenjackets.
The team plays four of their first five games on the road. Their lone home date of the five is July 22 when they host Sussex.
Typically, the R&B schedule pre-season games, but have been unable to so far.
But Ashcraft says he hasn't given up looking for one.
