New Era Field will host a 3-game regular season series of games featuring Buffalo-area Catholic League teams. The first one is a featured rivalry game between St. Joe's and Canisius on Friday, September 28th.
While watching a football game most people watch the ball. Whether it's the quarterback throwing it to a receiver or a running back trying to elude tacklers, most fans concentrate on what's happening with the ball. But there's a part of the game that often gets overlooked; the play of the linemen, the guys in the trenches.
High school football - It's what we used to LIVE for when I lived in Springville. It was with good reason. It was exciting to get out on that field on a friday night under the lights. People would talk about the chances of a championship at the barber shop and at the grocery store. This is my hometown.
