I returned to my journalism roots on Friday. The high school football season got underway and I covered a game. Citrus Hill HS thumped Desert Mirage HS by 52-0. The game was over by the end of the first quarter as Citrus Hill rolled up 21 points on the kids from the desert.
Every season, I debate whether or not to cover prep football, and every season I find myself pacing the sidelines taking stats and busting my butt for three-plus hours. But I've been doing it for so long it's old hat by now. The first thing I ever covered was a prep football game, way back in 1997.
Whenever I cover a non-soccer event, I usually try and represent soccer, MLS if I can, so I wore a Galaxy t-shirt to the game. I wonder if anyone noticed.
