EVANSVILLE - After hitting his own teammates for two weeks, Monroe junior Ryan Hughes was excited to be back on the football field Friday - even if it was a scrimmage.Three local teams, including Monroe, Evansville-Albany and New Glarus-Monticello, got a glimpse of how their teams may react in the season opener during the scrimmage. Sauk Prairie was also at the scrimmage, but Monroe had an agreement that they wouldn't scrimmage since they will play in the season opener. "We have been ripping into each other the last two weeks to get to this point," Hughes said. "It feels good to be back."
