This is Nate Weitzer, high school sports writer at the Globe and moderator of this chat: I'll be at Everett vs. Xaverian Friday night for a rematch of the Division 1 Super Bowl.
We'll have writers at several other Week 1 showdowns including Duxbury at Bridgewater-Raynham, King Philip at North Attleborough and Mansfield at BC High.
What other games should we highlight this weekend?

Other matchups to watch include Natick at Needham, Millis at St. Mary's, Wayland at Hopkinton and Springfield Central at Lincoln-Sudbury.
Springfield Central is reportedly loaded and L-S returns several key pieces from a run to the D2 Super Bowl last year.

Our preseason football capsules will be up later today, previewing every team in EMass. I found it noteworthy that Brookline basketball star Mark Barrett is going to start at QB this fall, his first time playing the position since Pop Warner!

Sorry for the delay on preseason capsules, the web pages are being created now and they will be live by the end of Thursday. Friday's paper will have a full page dedicated to preseason coverage with a cool feature on technology in HS football + players/games/storylines to watch this season.
