Football Season "Kicks Off"


After three weeks of scrimmages in the month of August{a lot cooler than usual} the heat and humidity returned to Western Ohio just in time for the start of the High School and lower level regular season...

It all got started Tuesday when I had the  Freshman Game at Celina vs Versailles....after a 2 hours rain and lighting delay, we got that one in...things were much smoother Thursday at Convoy Crestview, where we had a Junior High game between Crestview and LCC....and then Friday Night we got the Varsity season started at Hardin Northern as they thumped visiting Fostoria St. Wendelin 44-6....in all three of those contests, the new "30 point rule" came into effect.  That rule mandates that once a team goes ahead by 30 or more points, the running clock is used to speed the game up....and that happened in all 3 blow outs...finally yesterday in a JV game at Rockford, host Parkway defeated Crestview 21-8 and thus no 30 point spread ever happened.....

A full week after the Labor Day Holiday is on tap this week...I'm at Wayne Trace and Antwerp on Tuesday and Thursday for Jr High games, at Waynesfield on Friday Night for the second week over Varsity games, and then finish out the week back at Crestview for a JV game with Hicksville....

The season is underway for college as well, as the Ohio State Buckeyes, with a new QB for injured starter Braxton Miller led this years OSU team over Navy 34-17.....

May we have a nice long, slow, warm, and dry season ahead:

Back Later>>>>>
