    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 with more important or necessary ways to invest their time. Several of the boards have led to enduring friendships as well as contacts and friendships to share a passion with. i note all this because much of this type of communication, of basic contact has now disappeared. Whether the message boards have actually folded or simply only have a fraction of the participants they once had-for many they are only a shadow of what they once where. My Chowhound board (handle was “Joe H”) was the strongest with some posts having a million or more hits. Like high school football there were a lot of opinions about where to have a good meal. High school sports have long been a passion of mine. With frightfully heavy travel literally all over America I developed a love for certain home towns and their teams. I also met a lot of people many of whom I still talk to today. Today, many of these boards have disappeared. Many of those who posted have simply moved on and acquired a new interest or obsession. My purpose in writing this is to say we’re one of the few active boards remaining. For any topic. I appreciate, respect and thank all of you for allowing our respective passions and beliefs to be peacefully (!) and respectfully pursued. I value PrepGridiron and thank all of you for sharing with myself and others. This is a great board whose future success and growth I loudly applaud and encourage. Thank you, Gentlemen. Appreciated. Now to return to my many disagreements....😄

    Merry Christmas to the best damn HSFB fans in the country! Thankful to have this platform discussing football with fanatics from coast to coast. Try to keep it all in perspective. Hope all of you have a great holiday! Yes, even @The Guru 😏

    I start my radiation treatment in Jacksonville for six weeks on the 1st of July. Have to have two treatments a day. Hopefully I'll be done and can trek to Atlanta for the Corky Kell. Looking forward to some football. Go Packers!!!

    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 teams do not frequently travel outside of the state. Secondly, traveling to Texas is a little challenging because they play by different rules than we do here in California and we have to make sure we keep our kids safe. We most recently tried to play in Texas and contacted a very prominent team and they responded with "thank you but we would have to decline because we are looking for a lesser opponent". But the options are always there. We would love to come to Texas and play in front a Texas crowd against a quality opponent.

    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 hoped for, but, it's the season we got. It basically is what it is, and, it's in the books. 9 wins and 3 losses is not too bad at all. It's definitely something to build on for a new staff. I know many from Norman Park are feeling all doom and gloom today, and, believe me, I get it. A lot of us have invested a lot in this program in time, money and emotion, and, having an abrupt end as we did after being so full of hope with the changes over the off season looming large, is, well, it's pretty hard to accept and deal with. You can all probably read along my postings since last night and witness first hand my own way of venting and dealing with it all. There was no doubt that we would probably have to take a step back considering all the turmoil in the off season, and having a new coach brought in pretty late, and then having coaches brought in and dismissed all in a short time frame. Having said that, most of us remained hopeful, and invested in the kids and program. Many of us did everything we could to support the coach and kids, and, I don't expect much of that to change going forward. There will of course be much grumbling as people deal with this all in their own ways and their own time. I hope the Packer Nation can continue putting one foot in front of the other, and place their angst where it really should be placed, which in my personal opinion isn't with the coach and staff, but, of course above there, as that is where the changes that put us into such turmoil came from. Overall, I really enjoyed this season. There was so much new stuff to take in, and of course we continued to see our young men grow into men on the gridiron as they too dealt with all of the emotions of the turmoil and change. They made us proud fighting through it all and never falling apart like they really could have. It's a shame that one bad night ended it all for them. It's a shame that our senior group was thrust into this situation by the adults that are tasked with putting them in a situation for success. Not just the BOE but them and the last staff that had their shortcomings publicly displayed and aired for the world to see. There was definite failures from all involved in that, as far as the adults go. I'm also proud of how the new staff came together in such short notice and put on quite the show for twelve games. It was honestly an amazing thing to watch how the transition went and watch the kids grow into it all. We have a lot of good guys that are a part of this staff, and in spite of the tough ending, they deserve some accolades for everything they did in such a short time to get us back to the playoffs again. They of course made some mistakes as did everyone. We are all human, and suffer the human condition, and the best any of us can do is strive to be better and try to make each other better for the sake of the kids. I think this staff did that. We will all grow together and be the better for it. There is much to remember from this season, some little things that I noticed as I watched different members of the team grow and play. Some bigger things that the entire team did together as well. Small individual things that some fans may never really notice or pay much attention to like some of our o-linemen standing over much bigger defensive guys after they pancaked them. Tay Tay Ponder emerging from a crowd more than once in returns this year in an amazing display of will and never giving up. I'll never forget that amazing display down at Bazemore-Hyder stadium from the whole team and staff. They could have rolled over down there after getting down so far so quick, but, the coaches called a brilliant game and the kids responded mightily, even in a loss. That was the moment I knew we were going to be in for a tough season, and, also in that moment this new staff earned my respect. There is much to look forward to next year already as well. The cupboards are far from bare and we have a whole off season to work and come closer together yet still. I don't know if any of the coaches or anyone much at all will read this, but, if they do... Congrats to this entire new staff for coming in to the situation they did and earning the respect of many of us as we all started getting to know one another. Congrats to the kids that responded and came closer together through this all as well. All of you guys together truly are a Packer Point of Pride. Thanks for everything and GO PACK GO!

    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 another blowout win along with losses by teams like SJP, Northwestern and IMG, would propel us into the National Top 20". The AD went on to add, "National rankings are everything to us. Our average season record has been 13-1 over the past 10 years. This is a big recruiting tool, and kids from Reno want to play for a Top National team".

    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 on the California Interscholastic Federation’s big stage. De La Salle is still the undisputed king of the region, having not lost to a California school north of the Fresno area since 1991. But for the past three years, the program that once won a national record 151 games in a row has fallen short of scaling the Southern California mountain, losing to Mater Dei-Santa Ana 52-21 in 2017 and 35-21 last season after being beaten by Bosco of Bellflower 56-33 in 2016. The new video board at De La Salle was installed this summer. The Mater Dei game from last December remains its feature presentation. “That game has been up every day since the scoreboard went up,” coach Justin Alumbaugh said. “We just need a subtle reminder. It’s a subtle reminder that we can’t be fumbling, turnovers, guys out of a position on defense a couple of times. “It’s just a subtle reminder that the little things matter. That’s why we talk to the kids about that. That’s why we have it up there. It’s not to berate them or anything like that. It’s to give them a reminder that the little things matter, simple things like touching the line when we’re conditioning, making sure you have your ankle braces out at practice. Just adding things up, they manifest themselves in a big game like that. We have a big game coming early, and we want to make sure our kids are focused on all those little things.” The first big game of 2019 is Friday in Concord, opening night on national television against Florida powerhouse St. Thomas Aquinas, ranked No. 1 in the nation by USA Today. Aquinas has sent its share of players to big-time colleges and the NFL, including the Bosa brothers, Joey and Nick. For more Bay Area high school sports coverage follow Bay Area Preps on Flipboard. “I don’t think I’ve ever been more excited for a game,” De La Salle quarterback Dorian Hale said. “I thought last year, Folsom, was a really big game. But now St. Thomas Aquinas coming in for an ESPN game, I can’t wait.” De La Salle ignited its 2018 season last August, beating high-powered Folsom 14-0 in a highly-anticipated opener. Led by two-way stars Henry To’oto’o and Isaiah Foskey, DLS marched through the regular season undefeated and captured a 27th consecutive North Coast Section championship before the Mater Dei defeat. To’oto’o (Tennessee) and Foskey (Notre Dame) have moved on, but the Spartans return several notables. They include a quartet who made the Bay Area Preps HQ Fab 40 preseason player list — running back/free safety Shamar Garrett, Hale, receiver Grant Daley and receiver/defensive back Lu Magia Hearns. Running back/defensive back James Coby also will be counted on, as will sophomore standout Zeke Berry. “There’s a lot of guys who played, especially on offense,” Alumbaugh said. “In our defensive backfield, we have a lot of guys who are returning. We don’t have some of the big names that we had on our defensive line. It’s going to be up to our offensive and defensive lines, to see how much they can fill the void of some of those guys who left. “Lu was on the team last year. He has to be better than he was. Dorian has to be better. Other guys have to be better than they were last year. This team has a good vibe to it. They like working together. And they like playing football. They want to compete, and they want to get out there. So far I am pleased with their progress.” Expectations remain as lofty as always, which is why De La Salle schedules heavyweights like Aquinas in order to get the Spartans ready for a state title run. De La Salle has reached a state final every season since the CIF added the championship contests in 2006. The Spartans are 7-6 in those games. “Our goal is always to win the state championship,” said Alumbaugh, who is entering his seventh season as head coach. “We know the type of team that we’re going to face if we get to the state championship. The Mater Dei’s, the St. John Bosco‘s, the Corona Centennial’s, those are the teams that have made it every year since (2012). “If we’re able to make a state championship game, a team like Aquinas is the type of team we’re going to be playing. We know that. We have a pretty unique experience in that regard.” Indeed, they do.

    DLS can win, but, only because I have paid three installments to the refs already, with the promise of 15 more. 22 more if the margin of victory is more than 10 points in favor of DLS. They better not rip me off! Not sure how many more officials I can afford to grease.

    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 have a great sight line over the entire field. We got very lucky as probably 70% or so of the MD SFA game was played on the hash marks just below us and between the thirty yard lines... allowing us to see a lot of the subtle stuff close up. The Milton JSerra game was pretty boring for the most part... only getting interesting at the very end. These two teams are pretty evenly matched and if they played ten games, imo they would split them. The real highlight of that game for both Cal 14 and myself was the interaction we had with the Milton fans, particularly one woman whose son plays for Milton. This lady really knows her GA. football... and gave both Cal 14 and I an education about recruiting and transfers. She and her family were entrenched Buford fans ( of which they were from ) until their son transferred to Milton. Unfortunately I had to ask her to repeat a lot of what she was telling us due to the obnoxious PA system that was annoying everyone between the games ( they stayed for most of the last game )... hence there may be things she explained that I may not have fully understood. That part of the evening matched last year's game experience that we had with the IMG fans, thus reinforcing the expectation that the rest would follow. Sammy, Steeler and Dntn31 came over between games, as they were smart enough to grab seats in the shade for the earlier game. SFA came out first for the pre-game warm ups and to say we were blown away by their size would be an understatement. Those boys were BIG. Their warm ups were well executed and we were close enough to pick up on their attitude that preceded the game. When MD came out, they kind of looked like a regular team that might be in for a long night. The size difference was visually that effective. That for me, initially heightened the anticipation of a great game. That anticipation however diminished as SFA moved just below us before they went back to the locker room. It became very evident that while these boys ( their interior linemen ) were huge, several were huge and fat... carrying too much unproductive weight. That was one of several factors that played into how this turned out. My initial feeling was these linemen are going to have to be extremely athletic to deal with MD's skill... or they would be the one's dealing with a long night. As it turned out, they weren't... and for them it was. There are a few observations that may be worth sharing, one of which is: this game was nowhere near as close as the score indicated. The only thing that kept the final score somewhat respectable ( at least to the casual observer ) was MD themselves. They have not corrected their weakness for penalties. ( which Sammy asked me about relative to the same problem at the CC game ) At no time was SFA ever in this game. If not for those... MD would have hung 45 or more on them. Their offense is on a completely different level. They run it precise and even when the passing scheme breaks down, the lanes left open for Bryce Young to utilize his running abilities are huge. I don't recall ever: a complete receiving core that has the combination of "the ability to grab the ball no matter how covered the receiver is" and the ability to throw accurate darts the way Bryce Young does at the HS football level. ( Young imo is better than JT Daniels at this point ) MD's defense is equally impressive but it's that offense that justifies buying the ticket. MD's kicking game was also on another level... neutralizing any chance of SFA's return game that could have been an asset with their talented skill players... which they have plenty of... especially Corrum who we talked about throughout the game. This kid is a quick, shifty back with power and definitely worth the price of admission. Without him SFA would not have gotten anywhere near the 18 points. This kid is better than good and got Rollinson's attention where he made it a point to find and talk with him after the game. SFA was not prepared for any of the above and it showed when MD went up by two TD's. Their sideline arrogance quickly gave way to vacant expressions. At that point we all knew this game for the most part was over. As it turned out, this game experience ( outside of hanging with Sammy, Cal 14, Dntn 31, and Steeler ) was short when compared to last year's IMG game of which both Steeler and I felt MD won the game but IMG was the better team. That was not the case this year. The stands were reasonably full but after the first quarter the fan emotion and intensity really diminished unlike that of the IMG game where everyone hung on to every play. After the game at the Lazy Dog, we joked about MD not being the best team in the country because to be that, the team has to be in the country. As of today at the HS level, MD is not. With all due respect to Duncan, STA and maybe even SJB...This team is... at lease this week, in another universe after what we saw. SJB and SJC will do their best to bring these guys back to earth, but imo it will take a herculean effort. SFA is an elite team. They have lots of talent. Their QB is better than many have alluded to and can they hit! It's been a while since I have seen a team that consistently hits as hard as they did. If their program continues: with better coaching ( after seeing Poggi in person, I have to agree with BigDrop and CODBEARD ) and a better conditioning program along with a dose of humility that hopefully they acquired after this game... this program may eventually get to where MD is.

    Check out Corona Del Mar (Ca). They run a very similar offense to that of Mike Leach. Led by Elite 11 4star QB, Ethan Garbers, who threw for 4135yds & 55tds as a junior. He is committed to Washington. 4star WR Stanford commit, John Humphreys, who had 103 receptions 1783yds & 28tds. (In my opinion one of the most underrated players in the country. Kid is freakish. No one, and I mean no one, has been able to guard him 1 on 1. Was by far the most impressive player at Mission Viejo 7v7. Even the St John Bosco DB’s were outmatched) https://scorebooklive.com/california/top-performers-from-mission-viejo-passing-tournament/ 4star TE, Mark Redman (washington commit), who has 21 offers from the likes of Bama, Ohio St, LSU, Georgia, USC & Michigan. Receivers go: 6’6, 6’5, 6’5, 6’0 Garbers week 0 stats: 23/27 480yds and 8tds. Not bad. No, they aren’t a top 25 team. No they don’t play top competition. Yes, there OL/DL are undersized. But for a tiny public school in Orange County, they are damn good. They will have a chance to break a lot of OC/CA records this year. Best part is, they all grew up in the same neighborhood as each other and have been playing together since they were kids. Check them out, I have a lot of pride in my alma mater and couldn’t be more excited for this upcoming szn.

    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 on offense). Strong QB with plenty of skill guys to catch the rock. They were in a pretty good shootout with DLS that DLS ultimately won. Pitt is Pitt. They look exactly the same every single year. Fast and athletic. QB will be a question mark for them as usual. They've got a kid that's about 6-3 but a little skinny. Looks raw, needs to work on his motion, but there's potential there I think. Coaching! Central Catholic, to me, just needs a QB. Physically, those kids looked bigger than everyone and as fast as any team. But their QBs underperformed all morning. What you say, Russ? The rest were as expected. DLS: 1st Offense: QB - Hale, Center - Puckett RB - Garrett, Coby, Berry TE - Reid WR - Daley, Hearns, McAdoo, Bianchina, Tre Dean Seastrand (TE) and Norfleet (RB) were there but did not play. Both looked to be without significant injury. Both look to have grown a lot.1 1st Defense: LBs - Puckett, Reid, Hackett DBs - Garrett (FS), Bianchina (Spartan), Hearns and Coby at the corners. (Daley and McAdoo, Ellis, Majekweski (sp), and Dean saw time with the firsts) So let's get on with it. Hale has grown (6-0 180-185) and looks tough. His body is muscular and possesses a strong arm. He threw a couple deep outs to Dean and Daley that were money. The coaches teased us a little with some sprint outs, and it's clear (to me) that this will be a strategy on offense. His ability to throw accurately on the run is going to be a serious problem for defenses because he's fast and can pull it down and run just as easy.The backup Odell, was quite impressive as well. Certainly a pleasant surprise to me. He's got a pretty strong arm and is very accurate. He'll be a solid backup if (God forbid) something were to happen to Hale. Expect Hale to have a really good season. Puckett is the center. He looks to be about 6-1 230 ish. Looks like a beast, though. WRs are going to be really good by DLS standards. Daley is a natural at that position. Runs great routes, has good speed, and catches anything near him. Hearns has a elite speed, but doesn't look like he grew that much unfortunately. But he's got good hands, and like Garrett has that breakaway ability to turn short passes into long gains. McAdoo and Dean certainly grew. Both look like they're easily over 6 feet. Both have good hands, especially Dean. He's also got good timing and jumping ability. he demonstrated that a couple of times. Excited about this group. They did well for the most part today. RBs will be a strength. We know that Coby and Garrett can run, but they've got GREAT hands. DLS will definitely be trying to get the ball to these kids in space. They were both lined up in the slot on many occasions. Garrett had a couple of really nice catch and runs for TDs. Hale, Coby, Garrett will be a formidable backfield in my opinion. Hopefully, Norfleet pans out because he'll give the backfield some serious size. He "looks" the part (like a man), but he didn't play so we'll see. DBs will be just fine. I don't think they'll drop off much from last year...if at all. I just don't like that three of the four will be going both ways. But like at receiver, they've got a plenty of depth. They had a good day. Had about 10 ints through all games. LBs....We'll obviously have to wait and see with this group. Puckett was surprisingly moved to MLB (at least for today). He gives them good size and toughness at that position if that's the case. I expected him to be a starting DE. He's a player that DLS has been high on so we'll see how he assimilates to that position. They were ok at best today, but it was a 7 on 7 so we'll have to next month at the Jamboree how they look. Not a lot after those 3 guys either. Nothing today eased my concerns at this position. 😞 DLS will hold their own against STA in my opinion. They will score points, I have no doubt. But I'm not sure how their defense is going to handle the sheer size and the number of athletes that STA will put out there on offense. I think the overall lack of size and experience for DLS on that side of the ball is going to be problem. Against the rest of their schedule they'll be good, but STA and the Open rep will, once again, be huge challenges. Thoughts? Questions?

    Good luck brother!! I’m also a cancer survivor, been clear for six years. I had neck and throat cancer. Had to have my right tonsil removed to start. Then three round of chemo and 35 doses of radiation. Lost 42 lbs, my ability to taste, eat and swallow. I had to have a feeding tube installed and was on a liquid diet for two months. Hardest thing I’ve ever gone through but I made it. You’ll make it too!!

    This is a fascinating commentary from Bayern Munich on the future of both athletes’ pay as well as what sports franchises may be in for at least in the near future. Much will be dictated by how long we wait for a cure or vaccine but in the meantime there will probably only be a fraction who return to any kind of large gathering anywhere on earth-at least anytime soon. I will add that the industry I retired from as a senior executive is absolutely terrified where this could potentially lead. If it’s a matter of just a few more months it might only be a lost season or year. But if there are waves here or around the world and a vaccine is more than a year away this is frightening until then. https://www.bavarianfootballworks.com/2020/4/4/21207569/oliver-bierhoff-karl-heinz-rummenigge-coronavirus-transfer-fee-boom-germany-bayern-munich The reach of this may be extraordinary: from Disney to Myrtle Beach to Michigan stadium to Fenway park to a cineplex to a restaurant to a hotel, airplane, cruise ship and on and on. Even to weddings and church services. And I haven’t said a word about the lost income of those who might go. Can I also mention that as a 73 year old man with heart valve disease I had not really been overly concerned with its eventual replacement. (Miracle surgery called TAVR that is one or two nights in the hospital-Mick Jagger had it recently.) But if I somehow contract the coronavirus I would have a new and serious complication and concern. The result is that over the years I built a wine cellar of over a thousand bottles. Today, of course, there is only one clear and somewhat reassuring solution: to begin drinking it down. 🍷and best of health to all! And to memories of the good old days....

    Gents. This chapter started on June 4th, 1990 at 0800 hrs and it all ended this morning at 0700 hrs. March 27th, 2020. I made it through my career relatively unscathed. I had one bout of cancer (God was looking out for me for sure) and a few burns, bruises, scrapes and sprains...and only 1 divorce ...over 29 years and 10 months of service. I AM NOW OFFICIALLY RETIRED from the Fire and Emergency Medical Services. 😲😎 It's kind of weird to be honest. Surreal. And it's unfortunate that I wasn't able to have a send off party like we always do for retirees. I'll maybe get it another day down the road. And I have postponed my retirement of a trip to Germany for another day for obvious reasons. So it's a little bittersweet in that regard. BUT...I'm fortunate to have been a able-bodied servant to my fellow man for almost 30 years. And I am grateful for what I now have as I move on to the next chapter of life at the ripe ol' age of 51. I've got my health. And I've got plenty of plans, and am willing and able. I feel a little guilty leaving at this moment with so much going on. Well...I'm not gonna lie...not TOO guilty. My replacement is a good dude who has a well-earned reputation of pretty much being a badass. The Division is in great hands as everyone is dealing with CV. The good news for you guys is now I'll be able to post even more🤣 Singing off as EMS-C #60981

    Couple highlights during the game. There were several people in the stands talking about how SFA was going to roll. One guy was hyping them up to me and @steeler01 while we were in line for a Bosco Burrito before the game and we sort of just nodded politely. That guy ended up sitting not too far away and we saw him leave sometime around the start of the 4th quarter. There were two guys sitting directly in front of us who were clearly neutral HSFB geeks just there to take in the show. These guys seemed to know their stuff. About 5 min before kickoff another guy (we'll call him clueless guy) sat one row in front of them (2 in front of us). He was talking about how MD had absolutely no chance. The two guys in front of us were clearly affronted by this and clueless guy used SFA's win over the #13 team in the country as evidence to back up his position. I politely interjected that Miami Central is not the #13 team in the country and clueless guy then said they also beat the #9 team in the country as well (though I'm still unsure of which team he was making up in his head - clearly it wasn't Simeon or American Collegiate). Anyway, clueless guy changed his tune pretty quickly. It was hard to tell who was more shell-shocked after the first two MD possessions, him or the SFA sideline. The best moment through came at then end of the game when the two HSFB geeks in front of us got up to leave. @Gospeeder asked them if they had heard of PrepGridiron and suggested that they check it out. The two guys more or less looked like someone was about to steal their lunch money and they tried to leave as gracefully as possible, to which they failed pretty miserably. It was a valiant effort anyway @Gospeeder but I did get a good laugh out of it.

    Hey everyone, My name is Billy Ford, (BOXFAN) - longtime fan of the COXBOX, doublewing offense from a tiny Sierra foothill community school, Golden Sierra. I enjoy reading the banter even when it spirals out of control- usually about Folsom Actually we aren't too far from Folsom, but I have zero affiliation just to clear that up. My youngest is a senior this year, so my Friday nights will be filled with our games, but I like to get out and catch as many games around the Sacramento region as possible, and luckily we have a game on Saturday 9/14, so I'll be able to catch the Folsom DLS game, and hopefully other area marquee games depending how our season goes. I also have ties to the Lakeview Wild Gators in South Carolina, where my dad grew up. Anyways, wishing everyone a great football season, good luck fellas!
