In this High School Football America video vignette from 2009, Trish Hoffman and Jeff Fisher travel 168 miles west of Chicago to Miles, Iowa for their first-ever 8-man football game between East Central High School and Preston High.

Miles is a tiny town in eastern Iowa with 462 residents, that loves its high school sports!

In this episode, you’ll go inside East Central’s locker room to listen to head coach Dave Jenkins as he rallies his Raiders against their arch-rival. Trish Hoffman takes you inside the tiny press box where you’ll meet Miles’ mayor, who has also served as the Raiders PA announcer for 16 years.
