FAIRBANKS-So close but yet so far. Last year the West Valley Wolfpack were one game away from making the postseason but lost 42-13 in Colony in the season finale. The pack went 3-5 overall and 1-3 in the Railbelt. Second year head coach Kyle Allison learned that preparation before game day is the most important thing.

"We wanted to make sure that every player that stepped on the field was confident in their ability and confident in their assignment also. So we just wanted to make sure our kids had better preparation and were able to execute when asked," Allison said.

EIELSON- Just three seniors return to the Eielson Raven football program this season. Albeit a young team like last season they've earned their lumps. Eielson went 5-4 overall and finished in a 3-way tie with a 5-1 record in the Greatland Conference. They want a state title like everyone else, their last one was in 2012 but they're focused on improving together as a team first.
