    Super Bowls? Do some state associations have a deal with the NFL to use the phrase?

    Lakeland, Fl. Beat St. Xavier, Oh. in overtime.

    And yes, the Naughts won and are going to get STA in the title game again.

    Meanwhile, Miami Booker T. Washington can't get over the hump against Tampa teams, lose 20-15 to Tampa Plant.

    Washington lost three consecutive to Seffner Armwood in the state semifinals from 2003-05. Plant beats Armwood this season, and continues the tradition.

    Plant gets Ponte Vedra Beach Nease, Tebow's old team for the 4A state title on Saturday afternoon.

    Curious if most of ya'll's high school football games have radio stations covering the game?

    It still seems, at least in my area, that the press boxes are quite antiquated and there
    aren't any phone hook-ups, let alone the thought of [gasp!] wireless.

    Also, how many of those radio stations have Internet streaming broadcasts?
    Feels like we've come so far in the day of high school sports ... back when the only way to find out scores from across town was to listen to Friday Night Football on the local TV station at 11:15.

    Come to Canada, where in even the biggest of cities the sports reporter has to take his/her own stats, games are played midweek, after school on the "home school's" soccer pitch.

    Radio? I wish.

    In Florida, the High School Association does webcasts of the state title games, with local radio usually carrying a game of the week during the week that encourages fans to call in scores to their studio to get updates from other games.

    High School Football in Texas turned a page in the NFL strike year of 1982 when with less to do, TV personality Dale Hansen (later a Cowboys color guy fired for not being a homer by Jethro Jones) trumped up coverage as two neighboring subburban teams representing one school system went unbeaten in the regular season (Bell, Trinity) and played before 29,000 at Texas Stadium in the regular season finale. They both met again in the quarterfinals of 5A before 42,000. Bell would go on to lose to Jerry Ball and Beaumont West Brook, the Virginia Titans of the 1980s, at the dome in Houston. Coverage became nightly, regular and Hansen even got Tom Landry to come in on a Thursday night and analyze the first Bell-Trinity matchup. Hansen did a video using the Oak Ridge Boys' "Thank God for Kids" to high school clips that year and last I recall, gets demands to replay that during Christmas week.

    Found this on the high school football Web site Old Coach:

    The Battle Between SLC and Trinity Falls Short In Top Attendance of All-Time

    46,339 Watch Carroll, Trinity Battle

    By TITUS Sports Marketing --
    The largest crowd ever to see a non-championship Texas high school football game was treated to a memorable one -- Southlake Carroll 22, Euless Trinity 21 on Friday afternoon at Texas Stadium.

    The announced attendance was 46,339, which is second only to the 49,953 fans who witnessed Plano vs. Port Neches-Groves for the Class 4A title at Texas Stadium in 1977. Amazingly, the announced attendance for the Southlake Carroll-Euless Trinity game was likely 10,000 fans fewer than the actual crowd who witnessed the game. Only small segments in the upper deck of 65,000-seat Texas Stadium were vacant during the game -- primarily in the sun-splashed end zone.

    Southlake Carroll, which is the defending 5A, Div. II champion the last two years, entered the game having won 43 straight games. Trinity had won 26 straight including the 5A, Div. II state championship last season -- a squad many opposing coaches felt was the finest high school football team in Texas during the past 20-25 years.

    Carroll has not lost a game since losing in the 5A, Div. II state final to Katy in 2003. The Dragons are 75-1 since moving to Class 5A in 2002.
