The 4A high school pre-season football coaches poll has Bishop Kelly #1 and that's no surprise but what about Kuna at #3 and more surprisingly, what about the three first place votes given to the Caveman.

Kuna was 3-6 last year so is there something the coaches know that we don't?

We first of all Kuna continues to grow and the result is more athletes and better results. Plus, Skyview flew the 4A coop and is now 5A leaving a somewhat more competitive 4A SIC grouping.

Middleton is #2 with Vallivue  4th and Columbia tied with Nampa for 5th and Columbia even received a first place vote.

Maybe the biggest surprise for me is seeing the Emmett Huskies 6-4 last year predicted 7th. I just don't see that happening but the coaches should know best!

Ridgevue and Caldwell complete the 4A SIC standings.

It won't take long for the pre-season poll to starting taking regular season shape as the first games are just 8 days down the road August 24th.

630 The Fan in fact is gearing up for a first ever one hour preview show to air live 6:30pm to 7:30pm Tuesday August 21st from Wingers Restaurant and Alehouse on Eagle road.

We'll chat live with coaches and players plus there will be a wing eating contest starting about 7pm and that should be hilarious.

Friday August 24th 630 the Fan kickoffs another season of our Taco Bell game of the week with a huge 5A matchup, Mountain View at Rocky Mountain.

Hard to believe, just one more Friday night before high school football turns on the lights and the show is on!
