WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- If there's been better weather for the start of high school football practice, no one can remember it.
Defending state champion Dowling is back at it but with a new look. Just three starters return on defense, and just three on offense.
One of those starters is Hawkeye recruit Ryan Boyle. The quarterback is putting up a big numbers, and ready for a season with the proverbial target on his back.
