The roar of the crowd. The chants from the cheerleaders. The band keeping the beat. The players sprinting out from the tunnel.

Few events are more electric than the opening night of high school football, and GameTimePA.com is set to kickoff the 2013 season with a new way to preview football in the area.

Fans can still look forward to our print special sections. But GameTimePA has something for those who want an early glimpse of 55 high school teams from Fulton to Lancaster counties.

The GameTimePA.com digital preview magazine for iPads will be available in the Apple Store by early August -- a regional, interactive look at prep football to whet your appetite for the upcoming season. It will even be updated with fresh content before the lights are lit for the first Friday night of football.

Here's a closer look:

REGION SECTIONS

  • The preview is divided into three regions: Franklin/Fulton, York/Adams and Lancaster-Lebanon. Each section

    will feature team pages for each school, week-by-week schedules, a preseason all-star team, a review of the 2012 season, including photos, and a lookahead to the upcoming year.

    TEAM PAGES

  • Each football team -- a total of 55 -- has its own page featuring the 2013 schedule, 2012 team stats, an interactive look at results from the past five years, directions and a capsule look at what's in store for 2013. Each page will be updated with rosters and video from preseason camps. See which teams have new coaches and which players they expect to make an impact.

    PRESEASON ALL-STAR TEAMS

  • The GameTimePA crew put together all-star teams for each region. Each all-star will get their own football card -- touch it and it flips over to display videos from summer workouts along with 2012 statistics and expectations for the upcoming season.
