Today is 203 AG and if you miss high school football like I do and are searching for something interesting, here’s something you might watch to check out.
It’s been 203 days since Rudy Gobert tested positive and the Utah Jazz walked off the court back in March. Shortly thereafter the NBA, NHL, MLB and college sports put their seasons on ice, and although a semblance of normality has returned it’s not exactly the same, with no fans in the stands and people wearing masks and social distancing.
Here in Virginia we’re sadly missing high school football. If you want something to try and fill the void I suggest you turn to fourseasonsfootball.com on the internet. The site lists all-time records for every high school in the state of Virginia. Last fall it also included high schools from West Virginia, and in the meantime its added schools from Tennessee, Kentucky, Maryland and Ohio.
It really is an amazing site. For every Salem High and Glenvar game ever played you can find the date, opponent, score, location, head coach and the name of the stadium where the game was played. The site also has records of historical schools that no longer exist like Andrew Lewis of Salem, Big Stone Gap, Jefferson of Roanoke, Powell Valley and many more. You can check out the history of Andrew Lewis High School, going back over 100 years with legendary coaches like Pinky Spruhan, “Pop” White, Hal Johnston and Eddie Joyce.
It’s not a substitute for going to games on Friday night, but it’s something interesting to pass the time as we wait for high school sports to return.
