2021 Week 4 (Pennsylvania)
This week went a little off-kilter compared to the original plans. I had planned a Thursday night in Ohio. And my Saturday was a bit different. Schedule wise, things went a bit well after the initial upheaval. However, I did have some issues along the way. Mostly on Saturday. But, in the end, Pennsylvania was on tap for four games and a Browns game Sunday to cap the weekend. Continue reading “2021 Week 4 (Pennsylvania)”
2020 Week S11 (New York)
So, 2020 was unlike any other year. And though I’ll write a full recap of the season, this is the final week of games. My 34th weekend of high school football of the 2020 season ended with just two games. In Western New York. Most years, my season has ended at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. A few times elsewhere. Once at the NRG Stadium in Houston. Another time, I attended the three Burger King Bowls taking place in Boca Raton, Florida. Continue reading “2020 Week S11 (New York)”
2020 Week S10 (New York)
The 2020 seasons is finally winding down to a close. The penultimate week went through without an issue. Despite some other covid-related pauses in Section 6 in New York. The Section 6 semifinals saw two cancellations. Luckily, neither of them affect my games this week. But it did make things interesting.
To start, was one of two consolation games that were taking place mid-week. I went to a baseball game in Akron on Tuesday with my daughter instead of making the trek back to New York. However, Wednesday I was heading to Alden for the Chuck Funke Bowl between Akron and Lackawanna. Continue reading “2020 Week S10 (New York)”
2020 Week S8 (New York)
Although Pennsylvania had one more week of games, my plans had already switched to New York and ending my season with four weekends in the Empire State. Primarily because the United X schedule had finished, and only one previously scheduled Saturday game made the 6 hour drive to Philadelphia a bit overkill. Continue reading “2020 Week S8 (New York)”
2019 Week 3 (Pennsylvania)
Week 3 ended up a bit more local than I had thought. My original Week 3 plans included trips to Punxsutawney, Erie, Youngstown, and New Philadelphia. But, with a Browns game on Sunday, decided to stick a bit closer to home on Saturday night. Continue reading “2019 Week 3 (Pennsylvania)”
2018 Week 10 (New York & Pennsylvania)
New York has a rather intriguing post-season structure. After a seven-game regular season, a three round playoff starts. For most classes. Class AA and D only play a two-round playoff, because of how few teams are in each. So, they get an extra regular season game. Then, those that don’t qualify can play in the “Funke Bowl”, which is a two-round playoff in each class. Again, except for Class D, since there’s only four teams.
However, teams that don’t qualify for the playoffs, or lose in the Funke Bowl, can play consolation games. Some only play one additional game. However, they can play up to three. One of those, is Springville Griffith. Who plays Tonawanda in the first post season week. And then plays East Aurora/Holland in the second week. Both games on a Wednesday. And one more week, next week, on a Tuesday at Alden. Finishing at 0-7, they’re desperate to get their first victory. Last week, losing, 14-7 to the Tonawanda Warriors. Continue reading “2018 Week 10 (New York & Pennsylvania)”
Pennsylvania (Week 7)
I was home in Ohio this weekend for the Steubenville-Massillon game, but that didn’t stop me from seeing some other games. On Thursday night in Pennsylvania, Cochranton hosted Erie Iroquois.
