First, you've got to separate parents from the rest of the adults. Some parents are good. We all know the "I didn't make it, so my kid must succeed" or "my kid is a superstar and everyone else is blind" parent who think it's a reflection of them.
Most parents are just supporting their kids in...
Nope. Kirtland is heading to Pittsburgh.
Keep in mind, Westinghouse is a city school in the PPS. However, they're the smallest "regular" high school in Pittsburgh. They also have a co-op with Wilkinsburg, who gave up football several years ago.
Dave, there's only one reason you so desperately want people's real names. And it's a little more than suspicious. You want retribution.
Sorry. You're a grifter living off others works. Also, best way to draw an audience isn't to belittle, talk down to, or criticize them.
Central Valley is a fun school to cover. The merger of Monaca (mo-knock-ah) and Center worked out really well for them.
Farrell is one of the smallest public schools in the state. Their enrollment # is 71 by OHSAA standards. Sports are huge for the school. That field goal landed right in front...
Of the past two years' PA title games you watched, which ones stood out for you, good or bad? I'm guessing the Avonworth-SC game is at the bottom of the list unless you love huge mismatches and blowouts.
Talked to the AD on the sideline of their game against Stryker. They were very adamant in trying to get back to 11 man. 8-man was just a stopgap to that objective. My guess is they're trying to move back when as a private school, with Covid happening and crunching a lot of families' available...
That 25-40k figure is also for a good grass field getting a lot of use. Most grass fields get varsity and maybe jv games and are otherwise unused the rest of the year to keep them in good condition. They also are lumped into general landscaping costs of the rest of the school grounds. Tractors...
Just so you're aware, the PSAL (NYC public schools) are playing spring football until the end of June. There are some games streamed. Mostly through YouTube. Entirely dependent on the school hosting.
Went to two games last week. There are three this week I'm going to.
Definitely my preferred way. Other than just all the games scheduled reasonably at one stadium on one ticket with no huge gap between games. But OHSAA is incessant on making sure the few hundred fans who will go to more than one game have to pay. Meanwhile that forces everyone to have Thursday...
If you're punished for not attending, it's not voluntary. And there's restrictions on when practices can take place.
Sure, everyone wink wink nudge nudge makes them required, but they don't so brazenly make it obvious to the rest of the world.
It might be the school had the option of passing the fee onto the fan or covering it as part of the expense of running the event.
My experience is limited to mostly asking how they handled it and a few times where everyone was issued a ticket, even if comped, because of contact tracing purposes
Especially considering the old physical ticket included the cost of buying, distributing, and accounting for those rolls of tickets. And then handling the money. So why do online tickets charge a surcharge for something previously covered by the ticket cost?
And we've been told that the online...
