IT WON’T BE EMPTY TONIGHTOur week isn’t over here at VarsityKansas.com — not by a long shot with tennis and golf regionals this weeknd — but Friday is finally here with a slate of huge prep football games in the area. Leading the way is the showdown between Class 5A’s top two teams with No. 1 Kapaun Mount Carmel and No. 2 Bishop Carroll at Cessna Stadium. I’ll be at that one and it was the lead item to my football notebook that’s in today’s Eagle.
Here’s the full schedule of tonight’s area games — Taylor Eldridge covered West’s win over North on Thursday night.
Some minor news on district assignments before I get into what I think are tonight’s top games — I spoke with GWAL athletic director J. Means last night and he told me that while there weren’t really any surprises out of Wednesday’s 2014 and 2015 district assignments, one slight change will be that with Northwest moving to District 8 — with Dodge City, Garden City and Hutchinson — that the Grizzlies obviously won’t play DC in the regular season anymore and that game will be filled by West.
So, Friday. Here’s Joanna Chadwick’s picks, to start off with.

And here’s my Top 5 games tonight, with my picks in caps: CARROLL at Kapaun, Heights at NORTHWEST, Collegiat at MAIZE SOUTH, TRINITY ACADEMY at Douglass, Garden Plain at CONWAY SPRINGS. Should be a fun night. Throw a #vkscores on the end of your tweets and I’ll check back in after the games.
