High School Football - Week 4 Already
Do you believe it's Week 4 of the High School Football season - I always say, once the season starts, it moves along so fast. So 3 weeks in, it still Xavier, Staples, Hand, Ansonia - the top 4 - you can move 2-4 several ways - no question who is #1. I don't like to rush the season, but looking ahead to Week 5, HAND at XAVIER, the game we've waited for, the world will ascend to Palmer Field in Middletown. The 1 thing you hope for in this game, is that both teams play well. Starting with Week 5, the Playoff picture starts to take shape - which teams are playing post season and which teams will try play to play the role of the spoiler but all teams should play for pride. Coaches will teach the X's and O's, but they can't teach Heart.
