    So what was simply a national-level high school football game has turned into a news story with River Ridge's John Curtis Academy playing a game at Texas Stadium against Euless Trinity while a hurricane is hitting back home.

    It's going to be an interesting day at the ballpark, that's all.

    We cannot have separate threads on separate high school football issues?

    I'm a prep guy and no, we shouldn't. We going to do a Big Game of the week thread too?
    Running state-by-state thread? And why is this on the J-board?

    Boy, I frakked up by starting this thread.

    The game became a news story becuase it had a New Orleans team playing on the day a hurricane was hitting the hometown.

    The TP had a writer who evac came in and do the news angle and the lowly stringer/lame thread starter did the straight gamer.

    Gotta give the TP and NOLA.com credit -- both stories up within 2 hours.
