GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — The ball goes on the tee Thursday night, as teams across the state and metro kick off the 2019-20 high school football season. 

While The Prep Sports Extra is ushering in year number 36 with Randy Shaver as host, we thought it would be fun to climb in the 'way back' machine and check out a blast from the prep past, in the form of a 1996 music video featuring the KARE 11 rock and roll band.

It was put together by chief photographer Jeff Wiltgen (he’s also the band's lead singer), an ode to the Prep Sports Extra show that even Hank Jr. would be proud of.

Watch and Enjoy!!
