If you've been dying for a little football the annual Idaho Potato Bowl 7on7 passing tournament Friday and Saturday could be just what the doctor ordered!

More than 800 athletes will be competing at the Optimist football fields in Boise in a 7 on 7 passing format that gives us the first glimpse of high school football for 2019.

Fall practices begin August 12th and our initial 630 The Fan Game of the Week live broadcast will be August 29th, Rocky Mountain at Borah, so for now this is the best football action available!

Some twenty teams will compete in the passing tournament and there will also be competitive events for lineman and junior varsity players will also get a chance to compete.

The tournament is free to the public and the action pretty much goes all day Friday and most of Saturday. The tournament highlights the skill players from the valley and some teams from across the state and really is a preview of which teams might just explode on offense in 2019.

Again there is no running, just passing but it's football and fun to watch.
