This Friday will be the season finale of Friday Night Touchdown on Fox 8. We’ll also say goodbye to co-host Allie LaForce, who has moved to Los Angeles to work for the CBS network’s new sports cable channel. She’ll fly home for the final show. She’s a true pro, only 23 years old and headed for stardom. I guess we won’t be “better looking” anymore, but we’ll be just as enthusiastic. Can’t wait till next year.
Thanks to Tim Hudak, who writes the Monday Morning Quarterback blog for St. Ignatius High School, for keeping everyone current on national high school football polls. He’s a wealth of information. He tells us that St. Ed’s is getting a lot of attention, for example #1 Cal Preps, #4 Rivals, #4 Max Preps, #10 Sports Illustrated, #15 ESPN and #24 USA Today.
Stayed up late last Saturday night to watch Colerain manhandle St. Xavier, 35-14. Colerain is impressive. However, don’t write off Ignatius. Remember, St. Ed’s beat the Wildcats on a trick play and a blocked punt.
This weekend’s high school football betting lines will be out Wednesday night. I’ll try to get them posted soon.
That’s all for now.
