FAIRHOPE, Ala. - Most of Baldwin County’s high school football teams will hit the field for the first time tonight in preseason games.

In Spanish Fort, the Class 5A No. 2 Toros will host 6A No. 3 McGill-Toolen in the inaugural “California Dreaming Bowl” at 7 p.m. The Toros won the Class 5A state championship last season while the Yellow Jackets finished 11-1 and lost in the second round of the 6A state playoffs. The game between the Toros and Yellow Jackets can be heard live on WNSP 105.5 FM and seen on UTV-44’s “Game of the Week.”

Elsewhere in the county the Foley Lions will visit the Gulf Shores Dolphins at 7 p.m. at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium at the Gulf Shores Sportsplex in a preseason jamboree.

“It’s a good gate between the two communities,” Gulf Shores head coach Ben Blackmon said. “We run it to where the first half is a game then the second half tries to some other guys in. Last two years we lost two starting linebackers in that game. Our goal this year is to go in, compete, get good looks and try to get out of there healthy.”

The Fairhope Pirates will host Davidson and the Baldwin County Tigers will visit Thomasville in other preseason games tonight. The Robertsdale Golden Bears also visit Satsuma in a preseason game at 7 p.m. Friday.

  • Foley at Gulf Shores at 7 p.m.
  • Robertsdale at Satsuma 7 p.m.
  • Baldwin County at Thomasville 7 p.m.
