Previewing North Platte Football

With Coach Kevin Dodson and Coach Kurt Altig

Previewing North Platte Football

With the high school football season right around the corner in North Platte, we know that many people are excited about the upcoming year and ready to get back out to the games. 

That’s why we invited head coaches Kevin Dodson of St. Pat’s and Kurt Altig of North Platte into the studio for this episode. As most fans know, there are some big changes in store for both schools in 2022. St. Pat’s will be making the move down to 8-man football, which was a tough decision but one that the community’s supported. And North Platte will take the field for the first time under Coach Altig as they look to rebound from the tough playoff loss last year.

We’ll talk to them both about what’s in store this year and what upperclassmen have stepped into leadership roles for each team. Plus, we’ll discuss the financial side of the game and what students can get out of the NebraskaLand University program we offer.  

Here’s some of what you’ll learn on this episode: 

  • The move from 11-man to 8-man football for St. Pat’s and what that means moving forward. (3:06)
