Another to remember is that these teenagers are not used to preparing for a long road trip game in Ohio. You can travel 4 hours and be at whatever end of the state you need to be. Longer trips take a special group to remain focused and ready. When St. Ed's played Don Bosco Prep in 2011 I heard it was a nightmare of a trip. Long times in the bus plus inadequate meals and such. It all added up to them not being prepared for the game and getting their butts whipped 37-7. Now let's say Bosco was an Ohio team, I don't think the score is as bad.
