State football

Due to a lack of enthusiasm by two of the three winning teams in our coverage area and a rule that media isn’t allowed onto the field immediately after the game, here are 10 images from the three state championships game covered with 4 teams in our area. Full galleries here; Parkston game, Howard game and the Wessington Springs vs Gregory game.
