As we get closer to the start of the high school football season for many schools, we turn our attention to class AA school St. Mary's Central.

The Saints finished last season in 6th place in their division, with a 4-5 record overall. The team is hoping to improve on that finish and enter the 2013 season with a two game win streak under their belts.

Coach Dan Smrekar's squad will face their toughest task of the season in week one, when they welcome Fargo Shanley to town.

Here is the rest of the Saints 2013 schedule:

Aug. 30th: vs. Fargo Shanley
