Watch football players and fans from Bishop Miege High School celebrate defeating Buhler High School, 53-21, on Saturday in the KSHSAA class 4A-DI State Championship football game at Hummer Sports Park in Topeka.
Monday was the first day high school fall sports teams in Kansas could practice and Class 5A football defending state champion Mill Valley was among the teams hitting the field. Coach Joel Applebee has just six returning starters from last year's title team, but he has 23 seniors on his roster who want to duplicate last year's success.
For nearly a decade, the Mill Valley football team has been building its legacy on Saturday mornings. Now, the Jaguars have a chance to bring home the program’s first state title on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Pittsburg State.
