Johnson Central to play top team in the country.........


 Share

Recommended Posts

...... of course the country is Canada though.

 

In a game definately worth of the "This will be interesting" category. Johnson Central will host St. Thomas More from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on Sept. 5.

 

St. Thomas More has won two consecutive Golden Horseshoe Bowls in Canada, they finished last season 12-0 and ranked as the #1 team in the entire country.

 

This game brings up several pertinent questions:

1. Will JC have to re-do their field and make it longer with the goalposts at the front of the endzone. :D

 

2. Will Westsider's head explode trying to figure out the trasnlation of whether the best team in all of Canada is a worth replacement to Louisville Central? :D

 

3.Will Jim Matney hype this game as the single greatest matchup in the history of the US in international high school football, and following the win crown himself as the new prime minister of Canada? :D

So how long and where will the team from Canada stay? That must be some big time program in Canada to fly their team to Kentucky to play Johnson Central. Great for Johnson Central but I'm trying to figure out what the Canadian team gets out of this.

As far as the field issue for the Knights, I don't think that will be the big problem for them getting used to. The thing that I'd see them having is 1) in Canadian football, there are 12 players on the field at and time and they're allowed to have two players in motion AND 2) in Canadian football, teams only have 3 potential plays to make a first down instead of the 4 here in the States.

 

While these could be issues for most teams, it shouldn't matter to this team since it seems like they schedule one team from the States each year PLUS if they're good enough to be the best team in Canada, then they should be able to easily adjust to whatever rule differences are.

How good is Cleveland Heights High School?
Cleveland Heights, which lost to St. Thomas More 32-19 last year, is a Division I (big-school) program in Ohio. They were 3-7 last year. Their Massey power rating was about what Warren Central's was in Kentucky last season.

I noticed a return trip to Central High in Louisville does not appear on the 2008 schedule. Is this game the reason?
