It’s Week 10…..THE Game in Stark County!
McKinley – Massillon….absolutely!
Perry – Glenoak….absolutely again! And how about Jackson – Hoover, Fairless – Tuslaw, Alliance – Marlington. All of the games are Giant in stature in the communities, the schools that they represent. Yes, McKinley and Massillon represent an iconic history in High School Football with this being their 130th meeting in what many say is the Greatest Rivalry in High School Sports—THE GAME.
However, over in the PTO the Panthers are looking to close their season with a win, gather some points in hope of securing a 4 spot to have a week 11 home game. To the Panther faithful it’s THE GAME. Jackson vs Hoover…both hanging in at 6 and 8 respectively in their regions…neither can afford to lose. THE GAME. Marlington – Alliance. Both undefeated in the EBC. Both teams control their own destiny for a EBC Title. To Duke and Aviator fans. It’s THE GAME. Tuslaw vs Fairless. Always one of the best small school week 10 match ups. THE GAME. Central travels to Lep Country to battle with Louisville. The winner trying to salvage a .500 campaign. THE GAME.
And, simply put, to all the teams who are not in the mix for a league title, an undefeated season, or the playoffs….then this WEEK 10 is the THE GAME for your Seniors. Some who may continue to play the game at the next level, and many who will dress in their school colors, and play the game they love for the final time. That’s what THE GAME is all about. From my perspective in the booth—thank you to the coaches, players, and communities for making THE GAME so special. See y’all On the Radio.
