    Lamar's Tripp Tucker loves the Royals, smelly jerseys, Coach Scott Bailey's preseason football practices...and "Let It Go." The senior quarterback/point guard takes time out for a few questions.

    Lamar's Trenton Mooney loves Jesus, chicken patty day in the caf, and "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea. The North Dakota State football commit takes time out to answer a few questions about himself.

    Siblings Dylan and McKinsey Mountain are multi-sport standouts for Skyline, excelling on fields and courts throughout the year for the Tigers and Lady Tigers. While their athleticism is unquestioned, the "Odd Couple" brother and sister are even better people.

Ken "Joboo" Pollreisz takes an in-depth look at the numbers, which reveal lots of blowouts, little to no upsets, and a whole lot of chalk.On the flip side of things, what about the Cinderella story and the bracket-busting upset?

    With not enough players to field a regular team, Greenfield was forced to play 8-man football this fall. First-year head coach Steve Cole and the Wildcats had to learn a new sport on the fly, but the lessons learned and memories made will have a lasting impression..

    The high school football season began earlier than it ever has before this season. You may as well get used to it, 'cause times they are-a-changin'!

    Bolivar’s Rafe Peavey entered his final season as the #4-ranked dual threat quarterback in the country. The future Razorback's play this season has done nothing to dispel that ranking.

    A new, bracketed district tournament format was unanimously approved by the MSHSAA Board of Directors. Area coaches opine as to whether it is a good change or bad one.
