It is always one of the biggest dates on the summer high school sports calendar.
It brings together the best high school football players from Oregon and Southwest Washington and gives them one more chance to shine on the gridiron as prep players before they head off to college.
"It" is the annual Les Schwab Bowl, but like so many other events that preceded it, it has also been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The game was initially scheduled for June 20 at Hillsboro Stadium, then pushed back a month to Saturday, July 25.
While that later date also fell victim to the pandemic, it can't take away from the football accomplishments of the Class of 2020.
