The Boys of Fall

This week I chose the song "The Boys of Fall" by Kenny Chesney because the football season has begun in North Dakota and the NFL is right around the corner.

I had two fantasy football drafts the past week, and I feel fairly good about them. I will be putting up my weekly picks for the NFL this year, week one will go up soon.

This past week I had a busy Saturday and Sunday covering games and races and trying to get stats and keep everything all straight.

The good news is I have a ton of pictures from everything. Here you go:

Bottineau running back Matt Bowers grins as he sees a wide hole for him to run through last Tuesday against Westhope.

Sioux junior Tyler Henry attempts to burst through a sign last Tuesday in their home and season opener in Westhope.

Henry breaks through a little better before the game.

Sioux lineman Josh Farmer fights to wrap up Bottineau quarterback Justin McCloud.

It takes three Bottineau defenders to take down Sioux junior Karlie Hancock last Tuesday. (No. 23 is BHS senior Mark LaCroix).

Hancock stiff arms his way past Braves safety Brock Hiltner last Tuesday in the second half.

Taylor Kersten watches as fellow senior Ashley Miller tries to dig out a Tioga shot last Saturday afternoon.

Stars hitter Katryna Hahn prepares to slam a shot last Saturday morning during pool play.
