    The distance from Gaither High to Escambia High is 465 miles. A 7 hour plus drive by bus. It would be shorter if they went by boat.

    California Division I:
    Mater Dei 49 Mission Viejo 24
    St. John Bosco 52 Centennial 14

    This sets up a rematch between Mater Dei and St. John Bosco, who met earlier this season with Mater Dei winning 38-24. Mater Dei is almost universally recognized as the #1 team in the country, while Bosco is top five nationally according to MaxPreps and USA Today.

    Saw that Gaither needed to raise $3500 to fund travel expenses for this game, even with Glory Days Grill, a Bay Area chain of sports bars, picking up the food. To their credit, they have raised almost $4200 to this point. This is the first time Gaither has been this deep into the playoffs. The fans are really all over it.

    For the Miami Beach Bowl, a couple of years ago, Mrs. S and I did the tour bus package, which drove us from the USF campus, in north Tampa, to Miami and back. About 10 hours round trip. She and I were worn out when we got home and all we did was watch the game. It's going to be tough for the team to ride 7-8 hours on a bus, play a 3-3.5 hour football game, then hop on the buses and ride 7-8 hours back home. Even if they charter big tour coaches. In fact, under Florida law, I do not believe tour bus drivers can drive more than 8 or 10 hours a day. We had 2 drivers on our bus trip.

    It's going to be Black Friday, too.

    @swamprat, has the FHSAA ever floated the idea of going with neutral sites for the playoffs? Without actually knowing, I'm going to assume there's no shortage of quality facilities down there.

    The team I follow in Georgia is Price Avenue Christian. They lot last week to I want to say the 4X Defending State Champions Eagles' Landing Christian 62-57.

    Prince has the #1 Junior QB in the Nation in Brock Vandagriff. He is committed to Oklahoma. He went off for over 540 passing yards and ran for 88 yards while accounting for all 7 total TD's. Craziness!
