Welcome to Rusty’s Rundown! Rusty Hendricks here from SEMO ESPN and play by play announcer for Sikeston Sports. I am a sports junkie, especially anything Cardinals baseball. I went to Advance High School and graduated from Missouri Baptist University with a Broadcast Journalism degree. I also played baseball in college. I have been fascinated with sports from a young age and always seem to have an opinion. Hope you enjoy our blogs here on semoespn.com with the goal of talking sports! I will touch on national and local sports. Plus, really anything that catches my eye. Let’s get started shall we!
The High School Football Season is upon us! Friday Night Lights! The 2015 season starts tonight with many teams in Southeast Missouri getting under way. I have had a lot of fun covering High School sports the last few years, and I am looking forward to another great year.
Many players left to graduation (some even playing in college), leaving holes and question marks for many teams this year. However, it provides a chance for a new crop of players to shine.
How will your team fair this year?
I know this has already been done on other news outlets, but I would like to throw my two cents in. Here is my TOP TEN FOOTBALL TEAMS in our listening area. (Keep in mind I am taking teams basically from Perryville to Kennett)
Week 1 Top-Ten Football Teams
- Cape Central
- Poplar Bluff
- New Madrid County Central
Obviously things can change after each week of play. It is hard to say at this point how some teams will do. Nonetheless, it’s quite a bit of fun to try to predict. Do you like my picks? Would you add other teams? Would you change them around?
How do my picks stack up against SEMO ESPN’s Todd Bonacki?
