High school football, perhaps more than any other prep sport, captures so much of what drives excitement about high school sports. It is the kick-off to a new school year and a new sports season. Because football is a team sport that requires massive numbers, it also creates a following among family, friends and long-time fans.
This football preview, featuring Bloomington Kennedy, Bloomington Jefferson, Edina, Minnetonka, St. Louis Park, Eden Prairie, Hopkins, Breck, Cooper, Armstrong, Wayzata, Holy Angels, Providence Academy, Benilde-St. Margaret’s and Richfield, provides a first glimpse of what is to come this season.
This new football keepsake, created by Sun Newspapers sports editors John Sherman, Jason Olson and Anthony Iozzo, who bring a combined 65+ years of experience covering Twin Cities high school football teams, is designed to highlight football’s unique excitement. It gives fans a first look at the upcoming season and many of the key players from 15 different teams who are expected to play a big role in their team’s success.
It’s time for football, Minnesota. It’s time for some fun.
