Truman and Ruskin captains meet for the coin flip Friday night.
Football! Football is back! First, Friday Night Lights, as the Missouri high school season started this past Friday. Next Saturday, colleges will start in earnest. Then the NFL will start up the weekend after Labor Day.
We had fun at Ruskin High. Our team, reflecting the merger of Hickman Mills and Ruskin High Schools, is bigger (in all ways!) and more talented. Now in Suburban Mid 6, our first game was against Truman High School. And we thumped them! People were walking around District Stadium with their mouths open, gaping at the 45-6 final score.
This is gonna be fun!
