It is customary for me to remind everyone that the high school football season is 20 percent completed.
You know how you’ll hear people say “life goes fast, enjoy it”?
I’m just saying.
As we enter the fourth week and district play is beginning for just about every team in South Florida, I’m not happy with my performance from the past week.
After a week two that saw me go 46-2 – the stuff that legends are made of – I followed that up with a horrible 39-11 performance. It goes to show; you have to bring it every week. You can’t rest on previous laurels; you have to win today.
Looking vs. the slate of games this week, once again there’s a handful of matchups that are classic “trip-up” games – intriguing battles that will be decided by unmeasurable, unforeseen, intangible factors.
This is also the final week for teams to make their case for the upcoming SFHSSports BCS-style computer generated Top 20 rankings. The preseason rankings will go away after this week and new rankings will be released vs. the start of week five and every week following – through the final week of the regular season.
I also want to remind everyone about wearing your blue in support of Prostate Cancer awareness. As you all should know, September is prostate cancer awareness month. Prostate cancer affects a great number of men around the world and there’s a pretty high chance an older man in your family has been affected by it already.
While I encourage people to make donations for the research and treatment of prostate cancer, I also urge male coaches and fans 40 years old and older to ask your doctor about PSA blood testing and to get a prostate exam as soon as possible – if you haven’t already. Early detection is key and it could honestly be the life-saving factor in your treatment.
What everyone can do, though, is wear blue in support. #GoBlueForProstateHealth
