As mid-September hits, footballs are in the air everywhere, including the respective home bases of our three gridiron guests this week.

Off theta, Simon Fraser head coach Thomas Ford takes us from fall camp through to Saturday’s home opener at Swangard Stadium against South Dakota School of Mines.

We’ve also got Ryk Piche (26:45), the head coach of the Langley Saints’ high school program, reflecting on the maturation of his team and its impressive 2-0 start!
