1A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 6

Here we are in the last week of September and our weekly 1A football report can finally focus on conference play and not just RPI positioning for the playoffs.  Regardless of how they fared through the first six weeks of the season, each team remains in the post-season chase as league champions earn automatic bids to the bracket.

1A FOOTBALL PREVIEW – WEEK 3

Some of the best regular season contests inside Class 1A football the past couple of years have featured games between Strasburg-Bennett and Limon-Crowley County.  Those Eastern Colorado rivalries continue this weekend and the matchups headline the week three schedule. Because Bennett has moved to Class 2A for at least the next two years, the game does not carry the same level of importance of the past couple of years as both teams were battling for…...
