History will be made when Soldotna, Kenai Central, Homer and Skyview kick off the 2011 prep football season Saturday.
With Week 1 comes the arrival of the new medium-schools classification - and the pursuit of its inaugural state title.
The nine-team classification includes the four central Kenai Peninsula schools, Kodiak, Houston, Ketchikan, Thunder Mountain and Sitka.
Kodiak and Houston are paired with the Peninsula schools in the Northern Lights Conference, while the other three belong to Southeast Conference.
