Effingham High School will have some long road trips during the upcoming football season. But the Hearts will open with three home games before hitting the bus circuit.

EHS will open with Breese Mater Dei Friday, August 24 then will play host to Taylorville the next Friday evening, August 31 in the Apollo Conference opener.

The following Friday, September 9 will have the Hearts facing Mount Zion at home.

Then comes the long distance circuit as the Hearts travel to Lincoln September 14, Macomb September 21 and Mahomet-Seymour September 28. That's a total driving distance of almost 750 miles round trip and a little over 14 hours on the road there and back.

But, then it's back around home to finish out the nine-game schedule. The Hearts will play host to Charleston October 5, travel to Mattoon October 12 and finish out hosting Carterville, which replaces Salem on this year's schedule, October 19.
