For the remainder of the month, we will take a look back at 2019 and several of the most popular stories around the Sunflower state.

Today, we will take a look back the Future Games at Lakepoint in Cartersville, Georgia July 31-Aug 3.  Uncommitted players in the 2021 class joined with players from Arkanas to make up the ARK/KAN team with many committing to their college of choice shortly after.  Kansas players in the 13 and 14 age groups joined with players from Missouri to make up two MOKAN team in the Junior Future Games. The 14U MOKAN team took 2nd place in the Jr. Future Games tournament.  CLICK HERE for all information.
