NORFOLK -- High school football is back and we're in the game with a brand new High School Sports website. WVEC 13 Sports has teamed up with USA TODAY to put the spotlight on Norfolk-area teams. High School Sports offers all high schools a chance to be recognized here in Virginia and across the nation.

Hampton Roads High School team pages are now live and you can find school pages by going to wvec.com/highschoolsports. We have already posted schedules and other features. Now we're looking for photos, videos and content from you to build out each school's page.

YourTake

One way you send content to us for your school page is YourTake. We're looking for everything from sports including football, volleyball, cross country, track and field, baseball, basketball -- to mascots, cheerleaders, marching bands and more!

YourTake makes it easy for anyone to upload and send photos or videos from the desktop or mobile device. WVEC 13 is notified and approves all content before it appears on the site.

LiveBlog

Want to be part of the conversation while watching your favorite high school team? Join the banter by tweeting @wvechss and #wvechss then watching the feed grow on our website.

Each week, USA TODAY Sports will post the Super 25 rankings. This year, USA TODAY is adding a Super 10 version for each local market, including Norfolk. Rankings are based on the input of scores, strength of schedule and Ken Massey's algorithm. These rankings cover football, boys and girls basketball, baseball and boys and girls lacrosse.

High School Sports is year-round coverage for WVEC 13 and will include volleyball, cross country, track & field, wrestling, baseball, basketball and more. All high schools and the local community are invited to rally behind their school pages during football season and beyond.

We are building a social community featuring content from all high schools, to be showcased on this platform, locally and nationally. HS Sports will help showcase athletes and sports programs.

Wanted: No.1 757 Fan!

It's time to show up for your school so we're looking for your photos and videos of the No. 1 Hampton Roads High School Fan! The one who wears the school colors, but then goes the extra mile to really show how much they support the team.

You can send photos to us and have them appear on your dedicated school page by using YourTake. You can tweet them @wvechss using #1757FAN. Then follow our WVEC 13 high school coverage on air and online at WVEC.com to see the best fans in the state of Virginia!
