ELKHART — The newly formed Elkhart High School football team has a message: It's time for uniting the community.

After a nearly 50-year rivalry between the Elkhart Memorial Chargers and the Elkhart Central Blue Blazers, the two high schools will merge this summer. But the football teams have already combined, and that gives the new teammates time to get to know each other better before the new football season.
