The high school football season gets off to its earliest start, and all eight area teams are in action in Week Zero games on Friday, Aug.17.

Opening night features an intra-county match-up between Cabrillo and defending CIF-Southern Section and State champion Bishop Diego at SBCC's La Playa Stadium. Dos Pueblos is "home" against Foothill of Orange County at San Marcos. The Chargers will be playing their home games at San Marcos while Scott O'Leary Stadium is under construction to put in new turf field and an all-weather track.

The start of the 2018 season kicks off the 50th year of football coaching for Carpinteria's Rick Candaele. His Warriors open at home against Rancho Alamitos, a large school from Orange County. Candaele started his coaching career in Idaho in 1968.

Also on opening night, perennial power Lompoc will be the first opponent for legendary coach Jim Benkert and his new program at Simi Valley. Benkert previously coached at elite programs Westlake and Oaks Christian.

Other games of note:

»Bishop Diego at St. Bonaventure on Aug. 24. St. Bonaventure is coached by Tony Henney, whose Nordhoff teams twice beat Bishop for the Tri-Valley League title (2013-14) and beat the Cardinals in the 2013 CIF semifinals. Also that week, Lompoc plays at perennial football power St. Paul.

»On Aug. 31, Bishop Diego and Lompoc, two of the winningest programs in the county for the last few years, clash at La Playa Stadium. The game kicks off Bishop's campaign to raise childhood cancer awareness and encourage people to join the national bone marrow registry. Ludreas "Reas" Peeters, the 6-year-old son of Bishop Athletic Director Dan Peeters and his wife, Jana, is the inspiration behind the special night. Reas is battling leukemia.

»Santa Barbara steps up in competition to play St. Bonaventure at Ventura College on Sept. 7.

»In a rematch of their CIF-SS Division 6 final, Bishop Diego plays at Golden Valley on Sept. 14.

»On Sept. 21, Carpinteria hosts Hueneme in a key Citrus Coast League game.

»The new six-team Channel League begins on Sept. 28 with the San Marcos-Santa Barbara "Big Game." The other openers are Cabrillo facing Dos Pueblos and Santa Ynez taking on Lompoc.

»On Sept. 29, Bishop Diego plays host to Grace Brethren in the Camino League opener. Grace beat Bishop in the TVL title game last year.

»Now Citrus Coast League rivals, Carpinteria and Santa Clara meet in a rematch of last year's Frontier League final on Oct. 19.

»Santa Barbara and Dos Pueblos are scheduled to square off on Thursday, Oct. 25 at San Marcos.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
