Football season is officially upon us as we bring July to a close. Every NFL franchise will have their Training Camps open and at full capacity. We ’re also about a week away from the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. This years opening showcase will involve the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Las Vegas Raiders. The College Football landscape is also active this week with more conferences hosting their Media Day events. The MLB season is now officially in the second half and the trade deadline looms. The unique thing about this season is that the playoffs have expanded from 4 to 6 teams in each league.
