In this week’s edition of The Inside the Lines High School Sports Podcast with Jim Powers, we catch up with Earl Austin Jr. from the St. Louis American and his popular “Earl Time Updates” to talk about his travels this past summer watching some great high school basketball around the Midwest. We then talked about the high school football season and some early thoughts on some of the teams in the area.
