If anyone needs a reminder of what sports season is around the corner all they need to do is drive by Keokuk high school around 4PM in the afternoon. The sight of teenage young men in full pads and helmets flying around the practice field with clouds of dust in their trails means one thing, football season is near. Beginning Monday afternoon head coach Matt McGhghy has had his squad endure dry, mid-80 degree temperatures as they prepare for a season in which they look to take the next step. McGhghy talked about how camp has gone this far and who he needs to step up this year.
Coming off of a 6 and 3 season expectations are rising for a Chiefs team that lost 9 seniors from last year’s squad. McGhghy is looking forward to trying to continue to improve the Chiefs football program and that begins with identifying his starting quarterback, which we will look into during Friday’s sports.
