Prep football comes alive for Iola Reads



December 22, 2011 - 12:00 AM

“No one was denying that the Redmen played pretty good football out here on the plains. The current senior class had won 51 in a row, three straight championships, and had outscored its opponents 704-0. These seniors had never lost a game in high school, had not let a team score on them all year, and were just three games away from capturing their fourth consecutive championship.”

That passage alone, from the spring Iola Reads selection, “Our Boys: A Perfect Season on the Plains with the Smith Center Redmen,” is tantalizing enough to prompt even a casual sports fan to pick up a copy.

The books will be distributed free of charge, starting Jan. 12 through the Iola Public Library, Iola Pharmacy and a dozen other places in town.
