A kickoff to the prep’s season

The first subject we are going to conquer today is Washington State high school football (old habits are hard to break). Practice kicked off Wednesday for most schools, with the first games in the state starting Aug. 31 and Sept. 1.

If you are a college football fan, and wonder, “why would I read these stories,” remember, the guys talked about here are the Cougs and Huskies and Vandals and Eagles and Pirates of the future.

The S-R’s Mike Vlahovich visited three practices Wednesday, from West Valley’s, where the Eagles are getting ready to play in the Great Northern League this season, to defending Greater Spokane League champion Mead, where the Panthers are making do without a handful of special seniors who are playing at the next level.

UPDATE: Mike’s blog entry can be found here.

Just about every other paper in the state also had something on practice starting, so we’ll just link the pieces. Just click on the paper’s name for the story. We’ll start with the Seattle Times, the News Tribune, the Tri-City Herald, the Kitsap Sun, and its story on the return of an old coach, the Bellingham Herald, and the Longview Daily News.

If you have anymore questions after reading all those stories, just ask and I’ll try to get to them. And remember, the Prep Report is still the place to get information like this on a daily basis.
