They're playing football Thursday

I’ve spent the last couple of days beating the bushes for interviews with all the MIAA, Jayhawk and KCAC players and coaches our little ole’ newspaper can handle, and at some point I realized — yes, Virginia, they will be playing football on Thursday.

Here’s the rundown of teams playing Thursday — they’re all MIAA. The biggie is, no doubt, Northwest Missouri at Abilene Christian. Can you imagine the pressure on this NWMSU senior class, with three straight (four overall) losses in the DII title game?

Check this coming Wednesday’s Eagle for my MIAA preview. And if you want to know EVERYTHING there is to know about area high school football, check tomorrow’s (Saturday) Eagle.
