Bishop Miege is Kansas high school football team of the week


Week 2 of Kansas high school football is over, which means we have another team of the week from the 913 area.

This week’s pick is Bishop Miege. To nominate a school for team of the week, shoot me an email or a tweet by the end of the day on Saturday with the name of a team and a couple reasons why you think your team is deserving.


The Stags are playing like they have something to prove. They were dropped to Kansas Class 4A this year, but have had no trouble so far hanging with the big boys. In two weeks, they have scored 80 points to go with their 2-0 record. Better yet, those two wins have come against Class 6A teams in the Eastern Kansas League.

Miege posted a 29-0 victory against Gardner Edgerton last week. Kansas-bound quarterback Ryan Willis connected with Jafar Armstrong for one touchdown and ran for another. Dawson Downing added two more rushing touchdowns.
