 2013 Year in Review

September 6, 2013 - Hickory v. Greenville
September 6, 2013 – Hickory v. Greenville

Once again, I went into the last week of the season in line to see 100 games in a year. This year, I had seen 90 games through 17 weeks with Texas’ planned ten championship games remaining. For the third year, I drove to Arlington, Texas for those games and must admit it should be on the bucket list of any high school football fan. After the Cedar Hill-Katy game, I had totaled 100 games for the second straight year.

As I’ve done the past few years, this is a breakdown of my travels. Continue reading “2013 Year in Review”

2012 Year in Review

Well, this past year, I didn’t get a chance to update the last two weeks. Which included both the PIAA and UIL finals in Week 17 and 18.

Because of this, and the lack of really any sort of doubleheaders in Pennsylvania to see, I decided to drive out to the Garden State to take in their championships being held at MetLife Stadium.

2012 Pennsylvania (Week 7)

Pennsylvania (Week 7)

Unfortunately, despite having the time to see the number of games, I haven’t had the time to write recaps of my weekends. But, I also haven’t traveled much for games. I’ve only seen games in four states so far this year and all of them bordering Ohio (Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania and West Virginia).

Before recounting some games from elsewhere around Pennsylvania from earlier this year, I’ll give a run-down of this week.
