Nine years ago, we ventured down the road of trying to become the Who’s Who of high school football when we launched the High School Football America Radio Show on the ArtistFirst Radio Network. Today, we celebrate our ninth anniversary.
Our weekly radio show ran for six years until November 24, 2017 before giving way to the High School Football America Podcast. To celebrate, we look back on that first show on July 21, 2011.
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 MaxPreps.com, 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.
