2014 Week 15 (Maryland & New Jersey)

Week 15 (Maryland & New Jersey)

This was a difficult decision for me. For the first time in years I opted not to attend the Ohio state championships. Though the games were moved from Stark County to Columbus, it’s obvious that the travel wasn’t an issue for me. And neither was the cost.

I could’ve gone up to Urbandale to watch them play Southeast Polk (hindsight is 20-20, as this was the best game). There was a few others.

But, I chose Des Moines North hosting Des Moines Lincoln. The Polar Bears and Rail Splitters.
