— Recruitment is under way for football officials for high school and junior high school football in Idaho’s District 2. The first meeting, which is an introductory meeting for coaches and officials, touches on rules changes from last season and points of emphasis for this season. It will be held Aug. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Lewiston High School Auditorium.

Additional meetings for officials will take place throughout August, usually on Tuesday and/or Thursday evenings. The full schedule of meetings will be provided to officials in early August.
