The drive would be worth it

PREP FOOTBALL UPDATED 10:27 A.M.; 12:50 P.M.; 3:30 P.M.

If there is one prep football game I would like to see this weekend, it is Prosser vs. Southridge at Qwest Field on Saturday. If the Cougars weren’t on the tube, I would get in the car and drive across the state for the 5:30 matchup – I kid you not.

The Seattle Times makes its prep picks each week and John Boyle let me know he picked this game (I had the wrong reporter earlier and John wanted me to “blame” the right person - thanks for the heads up). John chose Prosser but I’m going to disagree. Give me Southridge by 10, 34-24.

Mike Vlahovich took a look at the revamped Great Northern League today in the newspaper with a story and a column, along with notes. On-line, Mike has a team-by-team breakdown on his blog.

You’ll also find a question about recruiting on Mike’s blog. This is something that’s bothered him for a long time, and he’d like to hear your opinion.

This was also Prep Page day in the Review, with our weekly Quick Hits leading with the revamped Albi Stadium. I’ll be out there tonight and my plan is to give you a tour.

It was Prep Page day on the Idaho side of the border as well. Greg Lee examined the Intermountain League football race with a story and a notebook, which also covers the North Star League. The NSL story is here.

There are also Quick Hits as well, along with the Panhandle Picks, which can also be found on Greg’s blog.

From around the state, the Kitsap Sun looks ahead to this weekend’s games. The News Tribune examines the changing Tacoma-area leagues.

There is one other West Side game worth seeing this weekend, Friday night’s Bellevue at Skyline game. The P-I takes a look at this rivalry game between the 2005 4A champ (Skyline) now back in 3A, and the state’s most succesful program (Bellevue) this decade (four 3A titles).

Missed this yesterday, but the Columbian did a team-by-team glance of the high school football teams in its area.

Football in the Bellingham area is also quite different this year after the reclassification. Here is the Bellingham Herald story.
