In just 50 days (from Thursday, July 14) the high school football season will kick for Owatonna, Faribault, Blooming Prairie, Triton, Medford, and Kenyon-Wanamingo on Friday, September 2. NRHEG fans have just 49 days to wait for their Panthers to take the field on Thursday, September 1. Official practice begins on Monday, August 15.

The Huskies get a rematch of the 2021 section championship game against Rochester Mayo. That game was won by the Spartans to end a string of Owatonna section titles. This year's game marks the start of the final season at the current OHS. The new campus is set to open in the fall of 2023.

Blooming Prairie opens 2022 with a home game against Hayfield. The Awesome Blossoms were section runners-up last year. Medford will also be home. The Tigers entertain Rushford-Peterson on September 2. Faribault treks to Albert Lea and Triton hosts LaCrescent for their openers. NRHEG gets an early start by going to Kenyon-Wanamingo on Thursday, September 1.
