The NFL season is set to kick off on Thursday night when the Houston Texans face the Kansas City Chiefs in Kansas City.
The game is the first of 16 games on the week one schedule.
Locally, football action has been on the sidelines because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Sault Steelers of the Northern Football Conference and Sault Sabercats of the Ontario Football Conference had their seasons cancelled during the summer and the local high school football loop is on hold as well because of the pandemic.
With football on our mind, we figured it wouldn’t hurt to take a photographic look back at local football in Sault Ste. Marie with some of our favourite photos from the last action we saw in all three levels.
