Prep Football Preview

    Another year, another opportunity to try to come up with an original prep football preview idea. Does anybody have the link to last year's discussion? Also, is it more difficult to use a theme when the preview is stretched out over a two-week period?

    Two weeks?

    You don't do a tab?

    We don't do a tab, which makes it a little more difficult in my opinion. Still, we make note of the different pieces of the preview in each part of the series. It's difficult not to be generic, though.

    I'd mainstream it, work in as many minority people as possible. Be sure to include their photos.
    Make sure you send in those issues for the All-American contest.
    I'm assuming that you have more than just a handful of schools in your coverage area. So I'd do a preseason top 10 and countdown from it or pick the best player at each position and write a feature and then do capsules or a list of other top players at that position.
    Coach with the most career wins is another easy option. And also do something on all the coaches with a 700 winning percentage or better.
    I wouldn't do a theme, but that's just me.
