The Newnan Cougars football team won’t get a chance to go through a dress rehearsal leading up to next week’s season opener with Marietta after all.
Newnan was scheduled to travel to Griffin for a scrimmage against the Bears, but the exhibition was cancelled due to predicted heavy showers that were supposed to pass through Georgia on Friday night.
Newnan will now shift into preparation for its season opener next week against at home against Marietta.
