Week 2 of the 2021 High school football season kicks off around the state tonight(yes, Thursday night football!) with two area teams in action. 

New Smyrna Beach will open its difficult district schedule with Jones at home, while Deltona hits the road for Mount Dora. 

Originally, four area teams were set to play tonight, but the University-DeLand game was cancelled three hours prior to kickoff due to COVID issues. 

It's the second straight week DeLand has lost a game due to COVID. The Bulldogs' opener last Friday against Mainland was also scrapped. 

DeLand also lost its season-opener last season due to COVID problems. University opened its season with an easy 41-6 win over Deltona. 

Despite all of that, there are still games tonight. If you can't make it to the stadium, follow our live scoreboard for all the action as it unfolds.
