The 2016 high school football season on KILJ will begin two weeks from tonight August 18th when the Waco Warriors play their 1st ever 8 man football game in what is termed as week zero action.  They will be traveling to HLV Victor to play this new form of football.  Waco is switching to 8 man football because of lower numbers in their program, they have had a long and illustrious 11 man football history and are ready to start making their mark in the 8 man game.  KILJ-FM 105.5 and kilj.com will broadcast the game live beginning at 7 pm.   August 26th is week one of the 2016 season.   Clear Creek Amana comes to Mount Pleasant to tangle with the Panthers under the new Musco lighting system installed recently.  The freshmen teams will meet at 5 p.m. and the varsity tilt will follow, KILJ-FM 105.5 and kilj.com will broadcast the varsity game live beginning with our pregame shows at 6:30 pm.
