High School Sports Rally
It’s hard to believe the final week of the regular season is here, but that means it won’t be long before some players are handing over their pads after season-ending losses. This is the last chance for many teams to gain some momentum before the start of the postseason. It’s also a week where some teams can clinch a conference championship.
Friday’s warm but windy weather set the conditions for an amazing night of high school football. WCCO-TV had cameras at many of the big games, and John Lauritsen reported our featured game: Lourdes vs. the unbeaten Kasson-Mantorville.
One team that makes the WCCO High School Sports Rally highlights often is South St. Paul. The Packers are unbeaten (6-0), ranked No. 2 in Class 4A, and have a senior class and passing combination that makes the Metrodome the obvious goal.

There is no better time for a high school football fan than between late September and early October. It’s when the conference favorites emerge and when all the hard work in offseason starts to show.
As hard as it is to believe, we are now at the midway point of the season. It’s that time of the year where a team’s identity is established, it’s a matter of executing the game plan and knowing what the team across from you will do.
If you weren’t able to attend some of the last high school football games of summer, we’ve got you covered. Below you will find our featured game as well as highlights from many others.
Down at Mankato West, they have a reputation for good football teams and good quarterbacks. Signal caller Ryan Schlichte is filling some big shoes that were left behind. However, he should be a good QB, given his family tree.
There’s always that one week in the football season that means a little more than all the rest. You’ve put in the practice time, you’ve been in the weight room and you’ve watched the film. It’s time to go out under the lights and get that big victory.
It was a big weekend for high school football in the Twin Cities as there were a ton of big match-ups on area football fields. This is that time of the season where the team leaders start to emerge, and they do so by putting up gaudy numbers on a nightly basis.
