With the start of the 2017 prep football season just around the corner, Northstar Football News is breaking down the biggest games in each class each week. We will start with the biggest schools and work our way down.

Week One: Wabasso v. Lac Qui Parle Valley

Wabasso took its first step toward its appearance in the Class A state tournament with a 36-0 victory over Lac Qui Parle Valley in the Section 5A opener. Wabasso, Northstar Football News’ top-ranked team in Class A, is well-positioned to make another run at the state tournament. With an offense led by quarterback Nick Altermatt and receivers Cooper Taylor and Colton Taylor, Wabasso’s high-octane offense might be too much for Lac Qui Parle Valley to handle.

Week Two: Dawson-Boyd v. Minneota

Minneota posted an 8-0 record during the 2016 season, but the Vikings’ closest game came against Dawson-Boyd in week four of last season. With quarterback Alex Poehlen and running back Isaac Hennen leading Minneota and quarterback Alex Swenson and running backs Bentley Boike and Colton Husby leading Dawson-Boyd, fans should expect little defense in what could be a shootout in week two.
