The sight of overloaded backpacks and skateboards is starting to pop up around Northern Colorado as it is back to school time. Keep your eyes and ears open out there on your commute as there will be more young men and women out on or around the streets. Back to school time not only means that it is time to crack the books but that also means that high school athletics are back as well.

We have some outstanding high school athletic programs around here and it is time for our young local athletes to shine. I used to love watching my kids compete in sports. I didn't care what sport it was, I just loved watching the kids compete. It is hard to beat the excitement of a local school rivalry being played out on the field or court or mat or pool or wherever it takes place.

What is your favorite to watch? You can choose as many as you want. Let me what high school sports are your favorites.
