(7-22-17) The Indiana High School football season is less than a month away from kicking off. Three of the four Stateline area teams ended the 2016 season with winning records and long tournament runs, so a lot of anticipation for the upcoming year.

In tournament play, Adams Central lost to Pioneer in the Class A Semi-State game 22-8, South Adams lost to Eastbrook 22-8 in 2A Regional play, while Bellmont lost in the 3A second round to eventual state champion Fort Wayne Concordia.
This year South Adams will move down a class to join Adams Central in Class A and now both will be in the same 1A Sectional.
