Tom Gamble of In-Game Sports says the games chosen for each week's Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown will be announced week by week.

The opening game is at Princeton High School on Thursday, Aug. 19 when the Vikings take on the newly-named Raptors of Anderson. 

Anderson of the Eastern Cincinnati Conference was 7-3 overall last season and 4-2 in the conference. They have a new quarterback in Griffin Scalf this season who will throw to receivers Joey Faulkner, Evan Upchurch and Tennessee commit Brody Foley.

Andre Parker coached in the ECC leading Winton Woods to the title but now heads up the Princeton Vikings who were 6-1 in the Greater Miami Conference and 6-2 overall. 

 
Princeton returns quarterback Mekhi Lynn who led the GMC in passing. Among his receivers are Rodney Harris II and Isaiah Meyers, a transfer from Colerain. Antonio Nunley Jr. was one of the league's top tacklers last year.

"We've got to be in shape," Parker said. "They're going to try and run as many plays as they can run. They're really high-paced and they'll throw it around a lot. We've got to be really solid and take care of the football."
