Playoff Football

November 5, 2009 - Kim Collette
Can you believe 10 weeks of Ohio high school football is over?  I certainly can't!  But....I can say that I am more than excited that the "second season" starts this weekend!

I am a Martins Ferry  gal (around here I'm even known as "Purple").  I have been lucky  enough to experience the high school football playoffs many times thanks to the Purple Gang and  coaches.  And....I love it!  Week 11 football is great!  It's great for the communities, the fans, the coaches and definitely the players.  You get to buy tee-shirts and sweatshirts to wear (for years to come if you are like me).  Businesses hang "good luck" and "go get 'em" signs in their store fronts.  Traveling to games this weekend, you're sure to see lots and lots of cars decorated for "their team".  Who says a little sport named high school football can't bring a community together?

Martins Ferry, Harrison Central, Bridgeport, Buckeye Local, Shadyside, Monroe Central and Steubenville all punched tickets to the 2009 OHSAA playoffs.  If this is your school's 1st trip or it's 80th.....go to the game!  It is a great experience for everyone involved.  Wear your purple, blue or orange proudly.  Let loose and lose your voice cheering for  "The Dogs" or "The Noles."  Don't miss out!   Go have fun and show your support to the players and  coaches.  I know that I'll be doing that very thing!

Some people you might ask say that  I "bleed purple."  But....this week....I become a fan of all 7 teams who get to participate this week!  So....Good luck to all of the teams and communities this weekend!  Have fun and enjoy the trip!

Until next time friends!
