On this edition of High School Football America, host Jeff Fisher talks with Mike Grant, son of Pro Football Hall of Famer Bud Grant. Mike discusses his incredible success at Eden Prairie High School in Minnesota, where in 22 years, his teams have ONLY lost 24 games. Grant also talks about his time as a ballboy during the 70’s when his dad was taking the Minnesota Vikings to four Super Bowls.
Also on the show, Fisher discusses the 4th annual Honor Bowl that was started with a dream between Mark Soto and Casey Taylor, head coach at Del Oro High School, outside of Sacramento, California.
The Honor Bowl, which this year will feature 10 top-notch games in northern and southern California, features great football with an incredible salute to America’s military. Soto is the executive director of the non-profit group that puts on the event, while Taylor’s team has always taken part. This year, Del Oro, which finished runner-up in the CIF Division I championship game, will play on both weekends of the event.
