College Division I football is one of the most underappreciated sports of our pastime. It is what builds professional careers to the National Football League, and it exposes the exhilarating environment of many fans, students, and alumni. Many universities carry rich traditions, like Kansas's "Rock Chalk, Jayhawk" and Wisconsin's "jump around,” that bring together a group of fanatics to form a family. A handful of Oswego High School students can look forward to being apart of these college surroundings after graduation this May.

Some of my predictions may be bold. Some may be basic. Some may be savvy. Still, I stand by them upon the upcoming season for one of the most underrated and infatuating sports in America.
