We start to preview the high school football season in this week’s edition of The Inside the Lines High School Sports Podcast with Jim Powers as we are only just over four weeks from fall practices beginning. We start things off with the new head football coach at Vianney, Chris Starkey as he talks about coming home to his alma mater to take over the program and how his team has grown over the past month. We then talk with the new head football coach at De Smet, John Merritt about his transition from John Burroughs to De Smet and the great group of players that he will have on the field this fall.
