Class 6A football: Heights vs. Olathe North

We are 57 minutes from the start of the Class 6A title game. Both teams have their offenses on the field, and Heights’ defense just came on the field.

My drive up was interesting: as I left town, I heard that the Heights football team was delayed when a charter bus blew tires. The starters went up in the spare bus, and then the rest of the team followed. We passed a bus on the way here.

I’m looking forward to seeing this game, and I’m hoping for a close one. I think that Heights’ defense is up to the challenge against Olathe North, especially the way it has been playing. The offense is doing well, too, and it will have a tough time against a very big, physical Olathe North team.

All around, should be a good one. I’ll be updating here and Twitter — @joannachadwick — so check it out.
