Friday Football Broadcast Preview

footballNorthwest Iowa — This week on KIWA Radio it’s Okoboji at Sheldon on KIWA AM 1550. On KIWA FM it’s Boyden Hull Rock Valley at Spencer.

Week three of the Iowa high school football season brings with it the start of district play as the playoff hunt truly gets underway. After a road loss to West Lyon last Friday the Orabs are looking for their first win at home against an Okoboji squad who comes in at 1-1 following a loss to West Sioux.

With a number of atheletes on the roster for the Pioneers Orab head coach Tyler Lloyd sees that as the potential for a number of play makers.

The Orabs would like to continue the late game success of last Friday.

The Orab running game has the attention of Okoboji Head Coach Jon Allen.

Allen feels error free football will be the key to a win.

LA and the Coach Kent Dezeeuw bring you the coverage on KIWA AM 1550.

On KIWA FM 105.3 Boyden Hull Rock Valley takes a 2-0 record on the road to Spencer where the host team Tigers sit at 2-0 as well. Last week the Nighthawks posted the win over Sioux Center while Spencer was earning a win over Emmetsburg.
