Shelley's Richins Saluted with Story in USA Today

by Jeff Fisher
Idaho High School Football Huddle

If you're a regular follower of me, you know that I preach that there are thousands of high school football stories that go untold every year!

Here's a story in today's USA Today that is being told, and I think my readers will enjoy it.

It's about Shelly High School head football coach Dwight Richins, who is returning to the sidelines after serving his country as a reservist in Afgahanistan last season.

The Russets' 2011 season with Coach Richins back, got off to a great start last Friday when Shelley came-back to beat Idaho Falls 38-33 with the game-winning touchdown coming with 1:27 to go in the game.

Shelley has won four state titles in the last eight years.
