The 2022 high school football season is just hours away. It’s a season full of hopes, promises and aspirations.
Athletes, coaches and fans are ready. The same can be said for The Messenger’s sports staff. They spent weeks piecing together previews of his 65th football season and preparing for the next campaign.
With 56 pages covering 18 schools, the special edition arrives at your doorstep today.
Comprehensive reports from Fort Dodge, St. Edmund, and 16 Messenger Land programs are included in both story and photo format. Schedules and player breakdowns give you a taste of what’s to come from each team.
First published in 1958, this award-winning preview is a pre-season staple for local readers. It is the oldest and last in Iowa.
MESSENGER’S SPORTS DIVISION has invested its time and resources to ensure the continuation of a tradition of excellence that spans well over 60 years. Eric Pratt, Chris Johnson, Dana Becker, and Britt Kudra share a passion for telling athlete stories today and throughout the season at schools in north-central Iowa.
Best of luck to all the regional teams tonight and for the next few weeks under the lights of Friday night!
