The regular season kicks off tonight for High School Football in Maine, and MDI is home as they play host to the Madison Bulldogs, for the first time ever. The weather has become cooler at night, and it should be a perfect night for football under the lights in Bar Harbor.

I had the opportunity to talk with MDI Head Football Coach Mark Shields this morning. We learned that former Defense Coach Ian Braun is returning to the team in a certain capacity, how practice went this week, the health of the team, what MDI can expect from Madison, and what it's going to take for MDI to beat the Bulldogs tonight.
