Kickoff Classics

The Crosstown Showdown has been going on for years in Ohio. And small classics have cropped up from time to time around Ohio. WTOV-9 has sponsored some type of double-header in Steubenville or Wintersville (and Wheeling, WV) for quite some time.

But, there's also some impressive schedules out for out-of-state kickoff classics.

The first is Week 0 in Georgia for the 25th Corky Kell Classic.

It starts with 2 games on Thursday at Mercer University in Macon, 2 games on Friday at McEachern HS, and then 5 games at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday.

Thursday, Aug. 18 @ Mercer University Macon
5:45 p.m.: Houston County vs. Mary Persons
8:45 p.m.: Lee County vs. Jones County

Friday, Aug. 19 @ McEachern High School
5:45 p.m.: Buford vs. Roswell
8: 45 p.m.: South Forsyth vs. Hillgrove

Saturday, Aug. 20 @ Georgia Dome
9 a.m.: Kell vs. Tucker
11:45 a.m.: North Gwinnett vs. Brookwood
2:45 p.m.: Walton vs. Norcross
5:45 p.m.: Colquitt County vs. Mill Creek
8:45 p.m.: McEachern vs. Archer

Then during Week 1, as well as the Crosstown Showdown, there's is an event going on at Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. The 2016 Prep Kickoff Classic:

Thursday, Aug. 25
Woodhaven vs. Lincoln Park, 4 p.m.
Chippewa Valley vs. Lake Orion, 7 p.m.

Friday, Aug. 26
Allen Park vs. Taylor Kennedy, 4 p.m.
Canton vs. Dearborn Fordson, 7 p.m.

Saturday, Aug. 27
Chelsea vs. River Rouge, 12 p.m.
Southfield Arts and Technology vs. Detroit King, 3 p.m.
Detroit Cass Tech vs. Oak Park, 6 p.m.

There's also a triple-header at North Allegheny (PA)'s Newman Stadium in Wexford, PA on Saturday. I don't have the times listed yet, but this is the order:

Perryopolis Frazier v. Claysville McGuffey
Pittsburgh Central Catholic v. Washington St. John's (DC)
Pittsburgh Penn Hills v. Canada Prep (ON)

And the last one I'm aware of us Week 2, which is the opening week in New York. Section 3 is hosting another Kickoff Classic at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse. Ten games in three days.

Thursday, September 1
5pm Syracuse Henninger v. Cicero-North Syracuse
8pm Marcellus v. Syracuse Westhill

Saturday, September 3
11am Clinton v Pulaski
2pm Cazenovia v. Mexico
5pm Utica Notre Dame v. Vernon-Verona-Sherrill
8pm Fayetteville-Manlius v. Rochester Gates Chili

Sunday, September 4
11am LaFayette/Fabius/Pompey v. Onondaga
2pm Canastota v. Holland Patent
5pm Watertown IHC v. Syracuse Bishop Ludden
8pm South Lewis v. Port Byron/Union Springs

Also, Kentucky does have several Week 0 and Week 1 'Bowl' games. Usually a doubleheader at a pre-set location. Bowls I've been to have been the Roye Kidd Bowl (Richmond, KY), Montgomery County Rec Bowl (Mt. Sterling, KY), VisitNich.com Bowl (Nicholasville, KY), Ray Correll Bowl (Somerset, KY), Pike County Bowl (Belfry & Pikeville, KY), Barren County Bowl (Glasgow, KY), Rafferty's Bowl (Bowling Green, KY), and the Death Valley Bowl (Stanford, KY). Not everyone plays Week 0, though.

I was planning on the KY (Wk 0), MI (Wk 1), and NY (Wk 2), but am opting for the closer trip just for Saturday on Week 1 at North Allegheny and Week 2 will be a week-of decision.

I like the idea of the games at the Georgia Dome. I've seen two state title games there, but I think I'll wait until next year's games at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
