The prep football season will begin next month in Fontana, and players at two of the local schools are excited about getting new fields for their stadiums.

Replacement turf fields have been installed at Jurupa Hills High School and at Fontana A.B. Miller High School this summer, said Ryan DiGiulio, associate superintendent of business services for the Fontana Unified School District.

In addition, during the winter, an all-weather turf field will be replacing the grass field at Summit High School, he said. However, Summit's varsity games will still be played at Miller.

In fact, Summit will be competing against Miller, its nearby rival, when the 2019 season begins on Friday, Aug. 23 at Bruce Richardson Stadium.

Also that day, the Kaiser High School team, which won the CIF championship last year, will open its non-league campaign with a trip to Sultana, and Fontana High School will travel to Arroyo Valley.

Jurupa Hills will have a bye in the opening week and will play its first game on Aug. 30 at Fohi.
