Owatonna football captains Jesse Starks and Matt Kingland chat about the season. The Huskies open their season Thursday at Winona on Kat Kountry 105FM.

Owatonna High School might be the defending state champion, but Jesse Starks and Matt Kingland didn't want to talk much about it. That was last year. This is a new year. However, they know a target will be on their backs each week as the defending state champs.

Practice is advancing well as the players new to varsity football begin to get up to speed. Both are looking forward to hitting guys wearing different colored jerseys.
