High school football is back in the Coulee Region!

To help you get geared up, watch the News 8 Highlight Zone High School Football Preview Show.

For a second-straight year, News 8 has produced a full hour-long special to preview the high school football season in the Coulee Region. The show makes stops at all five regional Wisconsin conferences, as well as schools in Minnesota. There are also plenty of feature stories.

In addition, WisSports.net content manager/football writer Travis Wilson, one of the authoritative voices when it comes to high school sports in Wisconsin, provides in-depth previews and predictions. Former Aquinas head football coach Dan Coughlin also returns as an analyst.
