First ever high school football post.

Myself and Zeke went to a high school football game between my Hometown team, the Upper Arlington Golden Bears, and el Kaiser’s home school, the Dublin Coffman Shamrocks. Just a few highlights will be given as to not depress el Kaiser too much.

First half was marred by a lot of turnovers, unfortunately for el Kaiser they were all by his team: 3 INTs and 1 blocked punt. That led the Golden Bears to a 17-0 halftime lead. The second half wasn’t much better for him, they threw 2 more INTs. Dublin did manage to make a couple of late drives to make it respectable final score of 24-14. The game was never really in doubt, though, as UA controlled both sides of the ball for the entire game. Upper Arlington is now 6-1 and Dublin Coffman is 5-2.

A few side notes from some discussions that Zeke and I had was that we were utterly surpised how big both teams were (espeacially #75 of Dublin — if he isn’t recruited by Div. 1 colleges I will be shocked). The home crowds (UA) student section was pretty amazing and loud and very school spirited all game long. Overall we thought it was a good environment for football fans and families alike. We will say that we probably talked more about OSU than we watched actual plays, though.

We are hoping this may turn into us (contributors to MotSaG) doing some more High School games if for no other reason than to see some of the Buckeye recruits in action. It was cheap and fun and gave us a good idea as to what to expect from a High School Football game since it has been more than 10 years since we were at one. LOL we are getting way old.
