PODCAST: Preview the 2017 football season with us
School is back in session, which means high school athletics return.
In particular, this week marks the start of the 2017 high school football season in Southeast Missouri.
Episode 18 of the Semoball Podcast is long, but covers a ton of ground.
Podcast host and Southeast Missourian/Semoball.com sports editor Josh Mlot (@semoballJosh) talks with those in the know about the teams, expectations and question marks for football in the region.
First up (2:30), Josh talks with Sikeston Standard Democrat sports editor Chris Pobst (@semoballChris) about the teams in his neck of the woods, including Charleston's trajectory and what teams like Hayti and Sikeston bring back (or don't).
In the second segment (30:17), Josh catches up with Daily American Republic sports editor Brian Rosener (@semoballBrian) to get the lowdown on Poplar Bluff, and what he hears sounds familiar — a potent offense.
Finally (43:30), Josh chats with Southeast Missourian high school sports reporter Phillip Suitts (@semoballPhillip) about the teams in their coverage area, from the high-powered offense of Jackson to some major personnel losses to which team might be poised to take a step forward.
