COLUMBIA -- A sure sign the High School Football season is almost here is the annual Pigksin Preview photoshoot at Hickman High School. Thirteen of the top high school football players in the state gathered for the cover shoot of the magazine.

The Pigskin Preview gives a rundown of area high school teams, and colleges, including the Missouri tigers making their move to the SEC. The magazine will be out the week of August 13th in a town near you.

"I never really thought I would come out here and be on the cover," said Tipton senior running back Dallas Peoples. "I always wanted to, never knew I actually would. So, it feels really really really good."

Blair Oaks senior linebacker Derek Otto said, "I'm really ready to see the competition and see how big the boys are getting and see how we'll stack up against everybody else."

"We had team camp last week and that really got me in the mood to want to play again, I mean being it senior year you want to be the best you can," said Webb City senior tightend Wes Mefford.

Rock Bridge senior defensive tackle A.J. Logan said, "I like it a lot better, it makes the whole season count, and it's more like the college traditional way to get to the playoffs and stuff."
