The 2020 high school football season is scheduled to begin Sept. 4.

The West Jersey Football League released its division and crossover games Tuesday.

Some crossover games — games between teams from different WJFL divisions — are not yet finalized. For instance, the tentative schedule has St. Joseph hosting Hammonton on Sept. 4 in a renewal of a historic rivalry, but that game is not yet official. The teams last played in 2013.

The schedule also gives teams the ability to add non-WJFL games early in the season.

One of the most interesting Sept. 4 games has Ocean City hosting Holy Spirit.

Ocean City reached the South Jersey Group IV final last season, while Holy Spirit is the defending state Non-Public II champion.
