  1. I have posted on internet message boards of one kind or another since the late ‘90’s. For several I may have spent one to two hours a day on them, freshly obsessed with the new medium, the internet. For myself the boards included Chowhound, eGullet and Wine Berzerkers along with three or four high school and college boards. Over the years I’ve even shown up on German fusball boards, united airlines frequent flier boards and even rollercoaster enthusiasts (I sold them) along with several local boards in the D. C. Area. Today more are dead with others who contributed having moved on wit

  6. I dont think Mr. PrepGridiron gets enough credit for creating us fanatics a place to talk/discuss and sometimes lie (in Calis case) about the thing we love ... or just like ... HSFB. I think we very often take it for granted. The rules are very lax and for the most part we are left to our own devices ... You wont get that many other places, as many of us experienced after DJ shut down his site, before this one was created. So on behalf of myself, and the rest of the forum ... Thank you Mr. PrepGridiron.

  8. For anyone interested, I'm putting together a website on Massachusetts HS and college football that launches tomorrow. It will be called MassVarsity and run on the address massvarsity.com. If you like any of the stuff that I put in the Massachusetts thread, that's basically where it's all going to go. There will be stuff on UMass, BC, Harvard, Holy Cross and some of the smaller colleges, and obviously high schools, too. The first day, I'm releasing a story about all the transfers that are happening around the state, and I'm also starting a countdown for the top 40 teams in the MIAA that will e

  10. Dear members, On behalf of The Chief and the Executive Committee, we would like to thank you for a phenomenal 2018 season. From a membership standpoint, we are up to over 800 screen names and record 17 actual members. We saw many firsts this year, including a record number of posters being banned, unbanned, and then banned again. We thank our Mods, especially Hawg who is the only mod who actually does any mod work. Our other mods will be reviewed accordingly during the post season. We saw a record engagement by the Texas posters, albeit most of the activity came during the

Ok, uh, I'd like to thank the Academy, the whole PrepGridiron family, my agent, THS for tabulating the scores, ECHS for picking the games, my mom, my dad (music starts playing), crap, uh, my beautiful wife Amy. I love you honey, without you none of this would have been possible. Dare to dream!

  14. Mine would be astro photography. I built my own Telescope from scratch. Ground the glass mirror, but sent the mirror to have the coating put on it. I've been into astronomy since 1964. Posted are some of the photos I've taken over the last few years. First photo is with a 6 inch reflector using a modified HP Video Web Cam. Second is with my 4 inch refractor of the Red Moon. Same Modified Cam. Third is Jupiter with 3 moons with my 12 inch Orion 12XT intelliscope. Stacked and enhanced. Fourth is of the 10 inch reflector I built. I plan on going to Bowling Green for the

  16. I appreciate this. I love this community. Its great to meet and hang out with those I've had the chance to meet in person. Also give a lot of credit to @HawgGoneIt. He's been down since day 1 and goes above and beyond the call. Also, shout out @GardenStateBaller. He gets gruff, but he is passionate and wants (and does a lot) to see this place succeed. You too, @ECHS05. I know it isn't easy to come up with the games each week for the pick 'em. You and @THS2011 do an all-star job. Appreciate others like @dntn31 for keeping the polls spreadsheet. So many others I can list @whiteshoes and @Omaha V

  17. I was around when Jesus Christ had his moment of doubt and pain. I made damn sure that Pilate washed his hands and sealed his fate. I stuck around St. Petersburg when I saw it was time for a change. I killed the Czar and his Ministers, and Anastasia screamed in vain. I rode a tank and held a general's rank when the blitzkrieg raged and the bodies stank. Pleased to meet you. I hope you guess my name. What's puzzling you is the nature of my game.

(WVPN) The FBI and Attorney General are investigating a Alabama man for fraud and several other charges after setting up a fake football factory. Several victims were duped by the grandeur promised by a dream high school football playing against teams from across the USA. The glitzy named USA Academy coerced prospective players attempting to get them to pack up and just show up at this “

  20. We have a difficult time scheduling game locally here in California and we are always trying to be aggressive in our scheduling. We love competing against some of the best programs in the country so yes we will be doing some of the same in 2020. We are in the process of working on our 2020 schedule. We will probably travel out of state at least once and maybe twice depending on the weeks that we have available and if we have the necessary funds to travel. In terms of Texas.....yes we would be open to play Texas teams and have tried to do so in the past. The first hurdle is that Texas

  21. Well folks, now that I've had a chance to vent a little along the way since last night, I think it's time for some realism. Most everyone knows that Colquitt County Football has been through a lot over the past year, and there isn't a lot of sense in rehashing much of that at all really, but, the situation is hopelessly intertwined with the results of this season, so, there may be some references to it all. Probably deservedly so. I'll borrow a terminology from Coach Justin Rogers... This season for Colquitt County Football isn't the season that any of us envisioned, wanted or hope

  22. The 0-2 Antelope Roughriders (Calif #432 ranked team) host perennial Nor Cal runner up Folsom in a highly anticipated OOD game on Friday. Despite being outscored in their first 2 game by a margin of 14-63, coach feels good about the game. "Not many schools know about Antelope, but Folsom found us and was willing to make the hour long drive to play us." Still glowing over the Bulldogs 41-0 win vs Antelope last year, the Folsom AD feels good about rescheduling Antelope in 2019. "Hey, we are on the verge of being ranked in the Top 20 Nationally in the lazy polls, and a combination of

  24. IMO MD won on the scoreboard but it is still debatable who the better team may be. Styles can make for interesting match ups and this was the classic puncher vs. boxer scenario. MD finessed the win with a great job of offensive play calling after figuring out in the third quarter that they were not going to overpower IMG and needed the passing game to set up the running game. Watching them up close IMG was noticeably bigger, faster, more powerful...their running backs ran through MD's defense seemingly at will. Sanders and Cain are on a totally different level even for the Trinity.

  30. CONCORD — Two summers ago, on the heels of a blowout loss to St. John Bosco in the previous season’s Open Division state championship game, De La Salle players couldn’t possibly forget the outcome. The number 56 — Bosco’s point total — was copied on sheets of paper and taped to thelocker and weight room walls. The program has found another way to motivate itself. These days, De La Salle players only need to look at the school’s new video scoreboard to recall what happened in last season’s Open state final, a more respectable but third consecutive defeat o

  31. First off, thanks to @Wosinc @Belly Bob @Extremely Humble for the mentions. I don't believe I contribute or cover enough to qualify, but I really do appreciate the fact that you guys thought enough of me to say something. That means a lot. I love debating (and sometimes agreeing) sports with all of you, most specifically HS football. After all, the one thing that bonds all of us together is our passion and love for the HS game. That said, there are so many knowledgeable and passionate people on this board that it almost seems unfair to single any out. So if I don't mention you here, pleas

  36. I waited to start this thread so I could read most of the earlier game thread and maybe bring to light some of what we witnessed at the game in response to some of the earlier posts. Looking forward to this game, I was hoping it would equal the experience Steeler and I had at last season's MD IMG game. The hype leading up to this event certainly should have led to that. ( best hs offense vs best hs defense and all that crap etc. ) Cal 14 and I hooked up for the second half of the Milton JSerra game and locked in seats on the 50, close enough to the sideline and high enough to ha

  38. Teams: DLS, Pitt, Cardinal Newman, Downey, Monterey Trail, Siena, Serra-San Mateo, Central Catholic The order of who did the best in my opinion: DLS, Cardinal Newman, Serra, Pitt, Downey, Central Catholic, Siena, Monterey Trail Quick hits: CN looked pretty good on both sides of the ball as well. Lots of skill guys. One WR in particular that stood out. They've got a really good QB with a great throw. They always look like this. If CN could ever get line play like DLS, they could be at least a regionally solid team. Serra might be onto something this year (at least
