The football season is finally upon us, as area teams kick off the 2017 campaign this Thursday and Friday.
Brad and Dalton have plenty to talk about today, including some preview material from the annual Football Journal preseason section. The guys break down the preseason rankings (2:22), including some analysis of West Point, Calhoun City, North Pontotoc and Amory.
Also in the section was a list of 12 players to watch (11:44), a list that includes four Tupelo players. And speaking of the Golden Wave, Dalton is looking forward to covering their season opener a very good Meridian squad (13:04). Brad – who just rejoined the sports department(!) – will be at the Pontotoc-Houston game (14:29), which will feature the Hilltoppers’ standout QB, Urriah Shepard.
The guys also take a look at the Corinth-Shannon matchup (15:44).
And finally, the Athletes of the Week feature returns (17:01).
