The 2011 Valparaiso High School football season kicks off on Friday, August 19, 2011 with the Vikings playing host to rival Penn Kingsmen in a matchup of two of the state’s top teams.

The game will be broadcast live on ValpoLife thanks to the Region Sports Network’s radio team, with the broadcast starting at 6:00pm CST.

The Vikings start the season as the Region Sports Network’s #1 team in the region, after their 13-1, final-four finish last season. Here is an excerpt from Region Sports Network’s Weekly Top 10, featuring the Vikings on the top spot:

No shock at all here in the #1 spot, as the Vikings have loads of talent coming back to a team that ran the table until semi-state in 2010. With Paul Andrie, Andrew Kittridge and Bryon Duncan all returning to the Viking backfield, this team is going to score a lot of points, as long as they get good line play.

Good luck to the Vikings on their first stop in their state title hopes, along with the first game of Coach Mark Hoffman’s last season as head coach of Valparaiso High School football!
