Missouri high school football practice begins


by Jeff Fisher

A couple of week’s ago, we talked with Drew Lock, the state’s #1 QB, who was looking forward to the first day of practice, which was today across Missouri.

The Lee’s Summit quarterback was excited about trying to finish his career with a deep run into the playoffs.  Lock and Lee’s Summit finished 10-2, losing to eventual Class 6 champ Blue Springs 63-21 in the state quarterfinals.  Actually both losses were to Blue Springs because the Tigers play in the same league, the Suburban Big 6 Conference, as the two-time champs.

Next week, we’ll be joined on the High School Football America radio show will be Lee’s Summit West head coach Royce Boehm, who after winning the Class 5 title last year moves his program up to Class 6.

Lee’s Summit West, which also plays in the Suburban Big 6 Conference, opened practice this morning, according to KansasCity.com.  The Titans have captured three state championships since the school opened a decade ago.
