30Q-2-KICKOFF (No. 30): Are you ready for some football?

We’ve finally hit question No. 30 on our journey to the start of the season and we’re going to keep this one short and simple?

Are you ready for some football?

I think it’s safe to say all of you will answer yes to that one. The season kicks off tomorrow with Cardinal Newman hosting Concord at 7 p.m. Then it gets going in earnest Friday with a solid slate of games, including Bellarmine Prep at De La Salle at 7 p.m.

There’s not a ton more to say until that first kick off. Hopefully this years come even close to as good as last season was and we hope that we can do what we can to make it fun for you to follow. Ben and I will be back doing live chats, hopefully getting started with those next week. We also expect to do our Pigskin Geek videos again, hopefully with a debut episode next week also. Much of that will depend on the schedule of our staff, but we’ll do whatever we can to make high school football more enjoyable for you folks.

I know I’m ready. I know Ben’s ready. And I know everybody else is ready, so let’s get this football season kicked off.
