10 year ago today, we took one of our biggest steps forward when the High School Football America Radio Show debuted on the Artist First Radio Network. The show, which became a Who’s Who of high school football aired weekly until 2017.

To celebrate that momentous event on July 21, 2011, I thought it would be fun to do a Rewind Wednesday to that first show.

Here’s how I described the first show on the ArtistFirst website:

On High School Football America’s inaugural show, host Jeff Fisher talks with Brad Igou, head football coach at Barrow High School in Barrow, Alaska and his assistant Brian Houston about the start of the 2011 high school football season on July 26th in the country’s 49th State. Barrow is the only school playing 11-man football above the Arctic Circle.

Also on the show: Steve Spiewak of, who talks about his Preseason Top 25 Early Contenders Poll; Scott Young, head football coach of West Rowan High School in Mt. Ulla, North Carolina, whose team has won three straight 3-A state titles and owns a 46-game win streak; and Brandon Sheppard, Executive Director of the National Select 7-on-7 Championship.
